Late last Thursday night on the way back from Mivtzoim in Lakewood, a 22-year-old Israeli Bochur from 770 was stopped by a police officer for a traffic violation. When the authorities found out that his legal papers for being in the country weren’t sorted out properly, they immediately arrested him.
Unfortunately, he is now sitting in a federal prison, that is known to hold dangerous gang members, under disgraceful conditions, without knowing the language.
After discussions with the prison administration, various good-hearted individuals have managed to bring him Tefillin and kosher food for Shabbos, as well as a number of Seforim, hoping that he will be shortly released. Unfortunately, a week later, the Bochur is still in jail in New Jersey in terrible conditions, waiting for trial.
Besides for the thousands of dollars that have already been paid, thousands more is needed in order to pay legal fees for his upcoming trial, which they have said is not a simple case at all.
The Askonim involved with the case now turn to you:
