"2 rabbis, 8 others jailed in NJ, NY divorce sting
Email this Story

By GEOFF MULVIHILL
TRENTON, N.J.(AP)- Two orthodox rabbis and eight other men were arrested in an FBI sting in New Jersey and New York on charges they plotted to kidnap and torture a man to force him to grant a religious divorce.
Rabbis Mendel Epstein and Martin Wolmark charged Jewish women and their families thousands of dollars to obtain religious divorces, known as "gets," from unwilling husbands, the FBI said.
"They didn't do it out of religious conviction," Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Gribko told a judge Thursday in a federal court hearing for the men. "They did it for money."
Marc Agnifilo, a lawyer for Wolmark, said it's possibly a case where religious law collides with federal statutes, where the crimes they're accused of can be punished by life in prison.
"It's a very complex case. The government says it's all about money, but I don't think that's quite right," Agnifilo said after the hearing, calling coercion and even violence to get husbands to grant religious divorces "an old tradition."
The rabbis and the 10 other men were arrested as a result of an undercover operation that began in August when two FBI agents, one posing as a woman trying to get a divorce, contacted the rabbis. According to an FBI complaint, Epstein spoke about forcing compliance through "tough guys" who use electric cattle prods and even place plastic bags over the heads of husbands.
The FBI said the price was more than $50,000 and a prosecutor said at Thursday's hearing that the organization involved in the alleged plot had been involved in up to 20 kidnappings over the years.
No pleas were entered Thursday and lawyers for some of the defendants sought to minimize their clients' roles in an effort to get them freed on bail or put on home confinement.
Magistrate Douglas Arpert ordered all 10 held in federal custody at least until hearings next week.

The investigation took place in Ocean and Middlesex counties in New Jersey and Rockland County in New York, and ended with arrests overnight Wednesday.
Four of the rabbis' associates were described as enforcers, or "tough guys," as Epstein called the men who helped coerce reluctant husbands.
The undercover agents, including a man posing as the woman's brother, met with Epstein at his Ocean County home in August, during which the rabbi spoke about "kidnapping, beating and torturing husbands in order to force a divorce," the complaint said.
"Basically what we are going to be doing is kidnapping a guy for a couple of hours and beating him up and torturing him and then getting him to give the get," Epstein is quoted as saying during the conversation, which was videotaped.
Epstein is also quoted saying he wanted to use a cattle prod to torture the reluctant husband...."
They belonged to a liberal synagogue--you know like the Shitcowsky and Washwoman Schultz--figured that out right away when the democrats wanted to use a cattle prod, that's how classy they are. They support gays and abortion too-so I suppose a cattle prod would come in handy in more ways than one.:)

Who on Capital Hill is finally going to suggest starting impeachment proceedings? He has failed to uphold his oath to defend and protect the Constitution more times than I can count.

He makes Nixon look like Eisenhower. He makes Clinton look like a saint.

He has got to go. He is not the Dictator of the United States. He does not own Obamacare to the exclusion of all else, especially in light of its unintended consequences.

We have a two party system and negotiating comes with the territory. His refusal to do so is enough grounds for impeachment and if it isn't, it should be.

We need a rally of protest to beat all rallies of protest equivalent to every single tea party rally in one place on Capital Hill right in front of the White House lawn.

We have a petulant child pretending he's the teacher and disrupting the classroom and he has to be expelled. Permanently.

Facts are that in the aftermath, Gingrich, the leader of the shutdown, lost his job. And Clinton gained in support going on to an easy re-election. I don't think winners fire their leader. Do you??
Hey, you can believe anything you want. You've proven that.

That's a rather pessimistic attitude - that wealthy people just give to charities as a tax write off.
If someone is helping others, what difference does it make if not all of them have the same pure intentions as others?
The article focused on average income conservatives who even make a little less than liberals but give 30% more.
It's not that all liberals are tightwads. Many are just as generous as conservatives. It's the self-righteous attitude by some liberals - that unless the government acts as our collective conscience - conservatives are selfish just for believing giving comes from the heart.
There will always be a safety net in this country. We are a compassionate people. But the government has no right to decide who will be more charitable than others and forcibly take people's money based on that decision. That is not their role. It's also stealing.
Carol , you seem to operating under the delusion that "charitable" giving goes primarily to the poor when in fact only a small percentage actually does. The largest segment of giving is to religious organizations or churches. Most of that money goes to cover operational costs. I just got out of a vestry meeting at our church where we had to vote on some needed structural repairs and decide where the money was coming from. Other forms of charitable giving includes education, the arts and even animal shelters. While some donations to food banks for instance help the poor the vast majority doesn't even reach them.
As for your assertion that government shouldn't be involved I refer you to James Madison, the Father of the Constitution in a veto message to Congress;
"The bill vests in the said incorporated church an authority to provide for the support of the poor and the education of poor children of the same, an authority which, being altogether superfluous if the provision is to be the result of pious charity, would be a precedent for giving to religious societies as such a legal agency in carrying into effect a public and civil duty."
Do you get that Carol? Taking care of the poor is a public and civic duty. It is a governmental role and your assertion that it's theft is just plain stupid.

It's this Taliban mentality that holds the US back and allows places like China to move even further ahead.
Oblamercare is already crumbling under its own weight.
Democrats voted it in with a super majority without one single Republican vote,and,against the wishes of the majority of tax paying Americans.
Every poll since 2009,including ultra liberal CNN and MSNBC,show these results to this day.
If its so great why did the writers of this bill exempt themselves from the mandate and lead by example?

Even the low info voters who re-elected this incompetent bunch of buffoons are beginning to see what it was nobody who authored this bill wanted us to see.
