"After hearing her answers the Judge felt she was sincere and the three points of incarceration were met; "

T'shuvah, t'fillah and tzedakah?

Maybe the judge thought that face was punishment enough?

WoolSilkCotton; I must be seen to be believed

Haredi rabbis need to stay the hell out of people's legal and medical problems. Let them stick to examining underwear stains.

not on her back for sure - yikes

You say in your article - "a delusion encouraged and promoted by her foolish haredi rabbi, Chaim Goldberger – so outlandish." Where do you get your sources from? I presume you have them to make a statement like that. First of all - Rabbi Goldberger is not Haredi and secondly he did not encourage and promote her to write a blog....If you would just report the facts it would be nice...The facts are - she was a model citizen in prison for six months and on that merit and her responses to the judge they sent her home. No one in the prison authority could understand why she was there and they wanted to send her home early but the rule is you have to serve 6 months before the sentence can be reconsidered.

Editor

Please.

Goldberger went to a haredi yeshiva, has smicha from a haredi rabbi and personally – and publicly – pushed the anti-Semitism line .

Moron.

Ellis

Nice....Name calling. I'll tell you what. Instead of speculating and spewing your hate stuff. Why dont you talk to Wendy, Peter and Rabbi Goldberger? I am sure all three of them would tell you otherwise....

Editor

Lots of people are model prisoners.

Wendy Runge is a thief. She became repentant only after she could not weasel herself out of serving time.

Goldberger, you and her other friends and relatives who enable her foolishness are only going to help he get into more trouble.

Ellis

I cannot win a war of words with you. All I can tell you is - there are two sides to every story. Wendy is not a thief. But obviously this is what you feel and that is your opinion. At some point you should try to reach out to the three people and ask them what happened. If you still feel the same way after that well then that is your right.

Editor

Idiot.

Try reading this:

http://failedmessiah.typepad.com/failed_messiahcom/2011/02/smoking-gun-email-from-haredi-filmmaker-wendy-weiner-runge-may-seal-her-fate-567.html

Your ignorance is astounding.

Ellis

I will try one more time. Yes the email could be read in a negative way as a smoking gun. But it could also be read as an executive producer in film talking to his or her people to make the numbers look good so that the project is accepted. You are consistently looking at stuff with an ayin ra. That email does not instruct anyone to cheat. Just to make the numbers look good. That does not necessarily have to be a smoking gun. Anyway, either way - I give you respect. You do not need to call me an idiot or a moron or ignorant. I know Wendy and believe in her. I will not respond to you anymore so you can flame away at will.
