Video: Reb Sholom Mordechai’s Attorney, Guy Cook, Addresses Agudah Dinner

4

guy-cook[Video below.] Guy R. Cook, the Iowa attorney representing Reb Sholom Mordechai ben Rivka Rubashkin, addressed Agudas Yisroel of America’s 88th Anniversary Dinner last night at the New York Hilton in Manhattan.

Mr. Cook has been front and center in his advocacy on behalf of Reb Sholom Mordechai, whose case has riveted the attention of much of the Orthodox Jewish world – and of many outside of it, including former US Justice Department officials, who have perceived disturbing irregularities in the prosecution of the former Agriprocessors official.

Mr. Cook, a partner in the prominent Iowa firm Grefe and Sidney, has served as Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa. He is also a past president of the Polk County Bar Association, which represents more than a quarter of all the lawyers in Iowa, and presently serves as a member of the Board of Governors of the Iowa State Bar Association.

Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel, Agudath Israel’s executive vice president, who has worked closely with Mr. Cook over the past year-and-a-half as the Rubashkin case has proceeded in the Iowa and federal courts, introduced Mr. Cook at the dinner.

  1. May he be the right shaliach to help R’ Sholom Mordechai out of the gehenom that he finds himself in.
    Thank you, Guy.

  2. I applaud matzav for posting these videos to bring out the plight and injustice of Rubashkin. You deserve extra credit by the fact that you were even willing to do so at the expense of promoting a competitor by publicizing and giving the proper credit to YWN who took these videos.

    Most people would shy out of quoting a competitor. But you, for the sake of justice and truth were willing to do whatever it takes to promote Reb Sholom. I envy that! ken yirbu!!!!

  3. B’H. MAY THE MERIT OF 3 TAMUZ AND 12 AND 13 TAMUZ AND 19 KISLEV REDEEM TRULY NOW SHOLOM AKI’R .
