Reb Shalom Mordechai Rubashkin Marks 55th Birthday – and His Anniversary – Today


shomom-mordechai-rubashkinToday is the 55th birthday of our good friend, Reb Sholom Mordechai ben Rivkah Rubashkin. Today, 28 Tishrei, is also the wedding anniversary of Reb Sholom Mordechai and his wife, Leah.

We pray, with the rest of Klal Yisroel, that Reb Sholom Mordechai’s yeshuah will come bekarov.

Reb Sholom Mordechai is fighting a 27-year prison sentence for bank fraud and money laundering charges.

Some 389 immigrant workers were detained on immigration charges during the May 2008 raid on Agriprocessors, and Reb Sholom Mordechai was brought up on fraud charges, alleging he misled lenders about the company’s financial status. The company went into bankruptcy and was later sold for $8.5 million to SHF Industries.

All are asked to keep davening for Reb Sholom Mordechai ben Rivka.

  1. I think of R’ Sholom Mordechai almost daily. Over the Yomim Noiraim and Yomim Tovim I had him in mind during every Shmonei Esrei by Yaaleh V’yovoi, when saying the words “vezichroin kol amecho bais yisroel” …but a day like today it adds on a new meaning. How we must feel for the pain and suffering of this special yid who has suffered so much and of course his large and chosheve family that have endured so much suffering of their own. May we merit to see Reb Sholom Mordechai united with his family in no time.

  2. When will this end already? 27 years for what?????????? Why aren’t we demonstrating en masse in front of that animalistic judge’s home?
    what nerve.
