Dear Matzav Readers,
We were hoping to write a letter of besuros tovos, but the ways of Hashem are hidden.
The decision of the appeals court to grant the prosecutor’s appeal shocked legal experts and former judges who had considered the defense’s appeal rock-solid and deserving of a full vindication. Even more so, the court’s granting of the prosecution’s appeal for the case to be returned for a harsher sentence r”l is something they had considered a near impossibility. But we know that kol ma d’avid Rachmana l’tav avid – although we don’t understand, this too is for the good.
The defense will now appeal the case to the New Jersey Supreme Court. Being that only a minimal number of cases are accepted at the state Supreme Court, foremost Supreme Court attorneys, who have the recognition and respect of the Court, will be joining the legal team and be’ezras Hashem Yisborach the Court will accept the appeal and right the injustice being perpetrated against our father.
Understandably, this – coupled with the legal costs that will be incurred with the ongoing legal proceedings in the lower court – will amount to an exorbitant sum of money.
As hard as it is for us to turn to you for help again, it is too dreadful for us to consider the alternative. The tzibur’s support has been vital for us until now, and it is only with your help that we will be able to continue this legal battle.
The initial appeal to the state Supreme Court was filed on February 16. Please continue to stand together with us through this daunting ordeal. In the zechus of this achdus, may we be zoche to a complete yeshua.
