Rubashkin Case in Jury's Hashem's Hands - Prayers in Our Hands

Monday, November 9,
Tomorrow morning, sometime after 10am EST, the jury will start their deliberations on the Rubashkin case. A verdict should follow shortly thereafter.

Let's all say an extra Tefilah, give some extra Tzedakah and take upon ourselves a Hachlatah Tova, so that a good man, a good Jew, will go home with his family tomorrow and continue to do the great work he does. Let's tear down the gates of heaven and cause a great Kiddush Hashem.

And being that it is in Hashem's hands and ultimately it will be his decision, we have no doubt that He will do what is best for us Betov Hanirah V'Haniglah.

Update Tuesday Night:
After eight hours of deliberation Tuesday, the jury did not return a verdict. The seven-woman, five-man jury will reconvene Thursday because federal courts are closed Wednesday for Veterans Day.

Update Wednesday:
Orthodox Jews flock to SD, support leader on trial.
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — In the musty conference room of a South Dakota hotel, Sholom Rubashkin helps a disheveled man in a hooded sweat shirt wrap black bands around his left arm and head. Attached to each is a black box containing inscriptions from the Torah.

"It's on your arm close to your heart, on your head close to your thoughts," Rubashkin, a leader in the Orthodox Jewish community, tells Robert Graham in a thick Brooklyn accent. Graham nods.

For the 50-year-old Rubashkin, and the dozens of Orthodox Jewish men who arrive almost daily from across the country to support him, such spiritual guidance is partly why God led him to his federal trial in Sioux Falls. Click here for full article.
