Reb Shalom Mordechai Rubashkin is expected to testify on his own behalf today at his trial, being held in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The trial is currently in its fourth week. On Monday, the prosecution concluded the presentation of its case against Reb Shalom Mordechai.
The trial is being held at the US District Court on S. Phillips Avenue in Sioux Falls and is being presided over by U.S. District Judge Linda Reade.
Reb Shalom Mordechai faces 1995 years in jail if found guilty of the charges he is facing, which will be brought in two trials. The current trial consists of 91 charges relating to bank fraud. The second trial will focus on 72 immigration-related charges.
Reb Shalom Mordechai will take the stand on his own behalf today. His wife and father testified earlier in the week.
It should be noted that Reb Shalom Mordechai’s limited resources are somewhat hampering his ability to fight back against the blood libel created by the legal team representing the government. Be’ezras Hashem, the truth will continue to emerge, but tefillos are needed from Yidden around the globe.
Please continue to daven for Shalom Mordechai Halevi ben Rivkah.
