Last night the Munkatcher Rebbe of Borough Park danced with the Spinka Gabbai, Moshe E. Zigelman, who refused to testify in a criminal money laundering and tax evasion investigation, and who served 7 months in federal detention in New York as a result. Zigelman was released Monday but has a court date in LA at the end of January. Also dancing with the rebbe last night was Yoel Zev Goldstein, who was imprisoned in Japan for drug smuggling. The Munkatcher Rebbe reportedly helped get them attorneys and helped pay their legal fees.
