As Klal Yisroel celebrates the release of Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin, YWN will continue to update this post with videos Yidden celebrating.
As YWN was first to report the incredible news, President Donald Trump on Wednesday commuted the prison sentence Sholom Rubashkin who was sentenced to 27 years in prison – the first time he’s used the presidential power.
People should take a moment to make sure to send a thank you to President Trump
The decision to intervene on behalf of Sholom Rubashkin, who ran the Iowa headquarters of a family business that was the country’s largest kosher meat-processing company, came at the urging of multiple members of Congress and other high-ranking officials who argued Rubashkin’s sentence was too harsh, the White House said.
The 57-year-old father of 10 has served more than eight years of his sentence, according to the White House, which stressed the action is not a presidential pardon and does not vacate Rubashkin’s conviction.
