    The American Justice system has failed, this is a criminal matter to be looked into by the DOJ. How a judge colluded with law enforcement, the US justice at least on paper is predicated on the mantra that a person is innocent until proven guilty, in the case of SMR the Judge made up her mind a full year or 18 months before she rendered her “Verdict”.. This is an insane premise that she didn;t recuse herself from the trial, and after the facts came out that she was involved in the the planning of the “raid” she wasn’t removed… Read more »

    Yosef did somethings that on his level,had the consequence as punishment, jail and added time to his stay. So to with this ben levi…of course the jail not only expiates and cleanses, removing klipas, pure clean fruit will remain for us

    The cote of the article was beautiful and brought tears to my eyes. We really see the strength of a person when he is put to test. All Am Israel is praying for you, even in far away places like we in Brazil…

    Agree with number one. The judge collaborated with the prosecutor even before the trial took place, which is absolutely a violation of every single law. The transcripts were dedacted, and the judge was allowed to sit in on the bench for HER OWN HEARING! 27 years for white collar crimes is unheard of. This is a matter that defies belief or basic understanding. Hashem should have mercy on Rabbi Rubashkin.

    amazing article but...

    dont like the message that it gives in short: here is one chabadnik that is normal hence incredible. i firstly dont even think this is true that “”Your typical yeshiva bochur knows little about Chabad, just that they drive Mitzvah Tanks or that they wear strange yarmulkas.”
    I think Chabad has made a name for itself and is respected and well known by many.
    The article was strong and powerful, but the message brought across to the world is not good.

    Your absolutely right, the media is under the table the most powerful influence in society, it would pack the punch at the justice systems when they see head lines on the major news papers in america… With Hashems help

    Such Hestairim

    Hestairim like this one are so incomprehensible that I often wonder whether this incredibly good man may not be in this inhuman nightmarish situation partly because of OUR wrongdoings. We each need to daven for him from the depth of our hearts and mean it when we say” V’lo yai’ohnaish shoom adam b’see’bosee- “Let no man be punished on my account” during the introductory paragraph to krias Shma sheh’al ha’metah. Hashem is a kol yachol; may He make this horrible nightmare be over today mammosh.

    THE JEWISH COMMUNITY SHOULD GET TOGETHER TO ASK THE PRESIDENT FOR A COMMUTATION OF SENTENCE

    Instead of wasting time we should all get together and obtain signatures and support from community leaders and request the president of the United States for a commutation of sentence for Reb. Rubashkin. With the right pull in the political arena we can obtain a commutation of sentence.

    wow!!!!!
    Guest
    wow!!!!!

    this is so amazing to see that even though it is so hard R’ Rabashkin stays so strong so much so that i would not call him an “ordinary butcher” he is so much more. we hope and pray that sholom mordechai halevi ben rivkah should be realeased right away now!

    Reb Shalom Mordechai Halevi Ben Rivka is very close to redemption. Let us all, as Klal Yisroel bond in Tefilla & Maasim Tovim in Reb Shalom’s zchus. He & all Hashem’s people have suffered enough. Our achdus will crumble the prison walls for Reb Shalom & all yidden around the world. Hashem is watching from above as we beseech Him with Hakaras Hatov & Simcha in one voice!
