I thought on Tuesday that I might spend two cents on a 14-month prison sentence for a welcome federal ruling by Yisroel Goldstein, a rabbi on Poway’s Chabad.

Judge Cynthia Bashant of the U.S. District Court is absolutely right to reject the defense and prosecution’s joint recommendation to put Goldstein on four months of house arrest and subsequent probation without serving in harsh prisons. It was that.

Judge Bashant said Goldstein used too many people, even his own congregation, in his greedy pursuit of wealth. Prison time starting February 23 will send a message to anyone who may emulate his plans.

Sure, Goldstein offered a sweet word about his desire to make amends as a citizen, but the sweet word has long been his specialty. In the color of being a respected and compassionate spiritual leader, he tricked the government from tax revenues, tricked companies into providing consistent funding for charitable donations, and failed members of his congregation. I was allowed to.

Hannah Kay is the daughter of Lori Gilbert Kaye, a blessed memory murdered at the Passover Festival in 2019. Hannah told reporters after the ruling that she had partially blamed Goldstein for her mother’s death. He applied for money to the government to strengthen the security of the congregation, but he could not enforce that security. He was too busy lining his pocket.
