The Note He Scribbled As the Judge Read His Sentence

As Federal Judge Linda Reade read aloud his unimaginably cruel sentence of 27 years, which at his age amounted to life in prison, anyone else would have sunken into despair. But Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin is a man of unshakable faith, and during what were meant to be his last few minutes as a free man, he scribbled this remarkable note to his family.

It reads:

Please stay strong through the ordeal. Tell the bochrim that I really loved learning with them, and Hashem should save me even in this time, and who really knows?

Just tell everybody I am unshaken in my faith of Hashem.

A person goes through life, and we are only the avodim of Hashem, so I am an eved of Hashem and accept what comes.

    She’ll rot there with the worst punishment Gehennim has forever and ever, but she should also suffer horribly in this world.
