Dear Federal Bureau of Prisons:

It has become tzi mir known det I iz goink to be released mit parole on the Tirteent fin April 2737. I am tinkink vus dis has got to be Pesach oder too close to Pesach to get to Monsey in time, and I am needink to be released 2 weeks tzurik so I ken spend myne first Seder mit myne great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-
great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grendchildren end dere children end grendchildren.

Please to have a bissel rachmones end to release from mir on April der first so long as it is not a Shabbos? For sure by 2737 you will have hed genig fin mir enyway, and I am tinking det 2 weeks iz really not makink fin det much a difference on a sentence which is mehr fin 700 yohr lank!

Zeyr a grossen dank,

Der Grend Rabbi Sholam Weiss

NB: Weiss is right!

You have selected:

Tuesday, April 13, 2737

The corresponding Jewish date is:

Nissan 20, 6497*

So that's Chol Hamoed Pesach but he won't have enough time to get home for shvi'i shel Pesach!

Please write to your Conman, I mean Congressman, and ask that Weiss be released on April 1 2737 instead as that is a Thursday and he can even bensch gomel for being released if he leaves the can early enough to make it to Shacharis in Miami Beach.

Mishenichnas Adar Choizrim leCreedmoor

As there are 2 Adars this year, I will reopen the blog to post at least once each Adar. To be forewarned is to be sidearmed, or however it goes - so beware!
