Epstein - Wolmark Divorce Torture Trial:Recording of FBI agents talking to Wolmark

NY Daily News

The Prodfather was referred to as a "special" rabbi who worked as a "hired hand" to help Jewish women obtain their religious divorces, a recording revealed Thursday.

The remark was made during a conversation between Rabbi Martin Wolmark, 56, and an undercover agent posing as a Jewish woman in desperate need of help to convince her husband to give her a religious divorce called a get.

Wolmark told her the woman the potential beatdown procedure could be "very costly" and that she needed the assistance of Rabbi Mendel Epstein. The woman was charged $60,000, according to prosecutors.

"You need special rabbis who are going to take this thing and see it through to the end," Wolmark, 56, said in the call played in federal court in New Jersey.

"It's a process," he added, noting a Jewish court would first have to authorize the group of rabbis to take action.

The undercover, who was joined by another agent pretending to be her brother, claimed her husband lived in Argentina but frequently traveled to New York.

"You need to get him to New York where someone can harass him or nail him," Wolmark told her.

In January, Wolmark pleaded guilty to conspiring to travel to New Jersey to force a man to give his wife a get. Five other codefendants in the case have also pleaded guilty.


  1. The best defense r epstein atty can use is one of "we were scamming the supposed. Wife for $60,000 (or whateverthe amount was, there are different figures given, further proving it was just a general scam). We never intended to beat anyone,, just collect our money. Its a money scam we do occasionally. (He might even bring witnesses of previous. Cases where he might have threatened, but a deal was worked out (it is almost always worked out, not too hard to find. Problem is finding $omeone willing to relive her divorce in court.) Didn't know epstein and company were scamming fbi agents.

    Of course, testimony of other cases, ex wives, ex husbands previously treated by epstein and company proves them wrong.

    The guy is a great actor!! She says she is desperate, a bit too much. She also could have easily gotten caught, if R' Mendel would have called Rabbi Rappaport from Atlantic City. FBI got lucky.

    FBI, you may want to avoid names like Alejandro Marconi, or Joey Spaghetti. Try a name like Ronnie Sutton. Or David Massre. Sounds a bit more plausible.
