Perfidy in Iowa: The Saga of Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin


perfidyiniowa[Pdf link below.] As reported here on, this past Monday night, almost 2,000 woman and girls from all backgrounds gathered at Boro Park’s Young Israel Beth-El Shul in a show of solidarity and support for R’ Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin.

The crowd heard words of chizuk from the shul’s rov, Rabbi Moshe Snow, as well as from Rabbi Fischel Schachter and Rabbi Lipa Brennan.

Following the first part of the program, Mrs. Miriam Swerdlow took over as the emcee and introduced Mrs. Nissy Streicher, who recited Kapitel Chof of Tehillim and then introduced Mrs. Roza Hindy Weiss, daughter of Sholom Mordechai.

At the event, a newly released booklet titled “Perfidy in Iowa” was distributed. The booklet chronicles the saga of R’ Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin as reported in the pages of Yated Ne’eman, which, under the leadership of its publisher, Rabbi Pinchos Lipschutz, has led the effort to assist Sholom Mordechai. Due to the huge demand, the supply of the 88-page booklets was quickly exhausted at the rally. We are therefore providing the full booklet here, in pdf format, for those readers who have an interest in following the case since its beginning.

  1. The program was awesome, the speakers were fantastic. We hope the massive turnout was a chizuk for the family, and hopefully a financial success as well.
    The tragedy Reb Sholom Mordechai is in, is OUR tragedy and we all are in pain from it.
    May we continue to daven for him, for an open miracle,and for the complete geulah.
    If there are tapes of this gathering, it would be prudent for everyone to listen to it, very many fascinating and important points were brought up. May we hear besuros tovos very soon I”YH.
