No Court Today as Reb Sholom Mordechai is Hospitalized


rubashkin2The family of Reb Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin said he was hospitalized over the weekend in Cedar Rapids with a skin infection on his arm. His wife, Leah Rubashkin, said he complained last week of a bite, but didn’t know how it originated. His family said they thought the condition wasn’t serious.

Over the weekend, he received an intravenous antibiotic and a round of oral antibiotics, she said. On Sunday, he complained about the rash again, and he was kept overnight at Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids.

The judge and attorneys are in chambers now discussing the issue. Court is adjourned for today and will resume tomorrow morning.

  1. He could have gotten a spider bite from being thrown into that dungeon cell in Black Hawk.
    Who knows?

    Let court be adjourned. Forever.! He shouldn’t be in court to begin with. The Judge and Prosecutor should be the ones in court. They deserve to be in jail for life, for the lies they have fabricated about a good man.

    May HKBH have rachmonos, and send a yeshua to this heilige yid.
