Leah Rubashkin to Speak Publicly this Sunday

6

rubashkin4Leah Rubashkin, the wife of Reb Shalom Mordechai Rubashkin, who is seen as a pillar of faith, will be speaking publicly for the very first time this Sunday. The mother of 10, a resident of Postville, Iowa, will be addressing Crown Heights women this Sunday, December 6, 2009.

The venue is the inaugural Chinese Auction of Oholei Torah’s PTA, benefitting the large boys educational institute.

Leah and her husband are credited with establishing the Postville Jewish community, around the now-sold Agriprocessors kosher meatpacking plant.

As her husband faced 91 charges – bank fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud and others – Leah exhibited a calming influence while expressing her belief in his innocence.

When he was jailed in Cedar Rapids, Leah told the press she could not wait to welcome her husband home.

“We’ll give him a warm meal that he hasn’t had in two months,” she said. “And he’ll be surrounded by his children, who love him and miss him.”

When Reb Shalom Mordechai’s trial began in the Sioux Falls courthouse in South Dakota, Leah was there, receiving family and supporters with a smile and a kosher meal.

And even after the jury convicted her husband of 86 business-fraud charges, she remained strong in her faith, saying, “all is for the good.”

“Shalom Mordechai and Leah’s recent challenge was met with great emuna and bitachon,” Oholei Torah wrote in the invitation.

“Their simple formula of ‘Aleph, Bais, Gimmel: emuna and bitachon = geula’ inspire many positive actions.”

  1. Aishes choveir K’choveir! He’s a tzaadik (He was one as a kid too!) and she’s no doubt his eizer! May the Rachman shower them with His rachmanus.

  2. WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO DAVEN AND DO GOOD DEEDS FOR THE SHAMAYIM TO OPEN UP WITH ALL THE RACHMUNIS THAT THE RUBASHKINS ARE ALL MATZLIACH IN EVERYTHING THAT THEY DO AND IN THEIR COURT PROCEEDINGS.

  3. With this farce of a trial we are witnessing the downfall of the dream “America”. Sholom Mordechai ben Rivka is being persecuted relentlessly by the judge and the “system” because he is a Jew. As such we are all on trial. It is fitting for every Jew in this country to daven for him and his family as if it was ourselves mamash.
    May they and all of Klall Yisroel see great yeshuos mimkor harachamim bimhera.amen.

  4. I have no connection to Ben Brafman, but i saw many cases that was turn by him to be a small case with punishment of less than 5 years.
