Daybreak: Agriprocessors Trial Begins

Chabadniks in South Dakota, Barak works the phones, and more in the news

Print Email

•A federal fraud trial opened in South Dakota yesterday against Sholom Rubashkin, head of the Agriprocessors kosher meatpacking plant in Iowa shut down last year after an immigration raid. It’s being held in South Dakota because a judge ruled that Iowans are already biased against the Rubashkins. [USA Today]
• Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is calling foreign ministers from France, Britain, Spain, and elsewhere and trying to persuade them that officially adopting the Goldstone Report, which will be discussed by the U.N. Human Rights Council tomorrow, will effectively promote terrorism. [Ynet]
Haaretz obtained a copy of the Palestinian resolution that will be presented at the U.N. meeting; it accuses Israel both of the alleged war crimes in Gaza outlined in the Goldstone Report and of continuing to limit access to Muslim holy sites in East Jerusalem. [Haaretz]
• A synagogue in Florida has installed hand-washing stations outside its Hebrew school classrooms, which it’s requiring kids to use before class as an anti-swine flu measure. Churches, meantime, have suspended the wine-sipping part of communion to avoid spreading germs. [LAT]
