Rifky Stein interviewed for the Mendel Epstein trial which starts today

NY Post    LAKEWOOD, N.J. — When a Jewish woman wanted a divorce from an unwilling husband, federal prosecutors say, Mendel Epstein was the rabbi who — for the right price — could gather a kidnap team to make it happen.

Prosecutors allege Epstein’s team would use brutal methods, including martial arts beatings, handcuffs and electric cattle prods, to torture the man into granting the divorce.

“If it can get a bull that weighs 5 tons to move, you put it in certain parts of his body and in one minute the guy will know,” prosecutors said the Orthodox rabbi told a pair of undercover FBI agents posing as a brother and sister trying to force the sister’s husband to grant the ritual Jewish divorce known as a “get.” Prosecutors say Epstein was recorded telling the agents the operation would cost at least $50,000.

Epstein’s trial on attempted kidnapping charges starts Tuesday in federal court in Trenton. Several co-defendants have pleaded guilty in the case; others will go on trial with Epstein.[...]

His team that accepted the monies for the "hit" was the same team that formed the "Bais Din" that gave the ruling to kidnap. If they could rule so corruptively in such a case of a non-existent husband, what does this say about all his other Gittin procured via force?

  2. Please investigate this woman, also a fake Agunah who refused gets from one man, married a second and then refused three kosher gets from him. Now she must receive a get from the first or she can not remarry according to Jerusalem Rabbinute. She harassed Nachlaot for 5 years with her lies and character assassinations. http://www.gofundme.com/g521rk

    The man she names on GoFundMe is actually the victim of a terrible con job and he is still defending himself in court.
