Please go watch this video, Matthew Charles: Justice VS The Law :
Then go sign the petition to get his sentence commuted.
I taught at a jail. Some men there were in class for selfish reasons; “good time” and all that. But others were genuinely there to learn and redeem themselves.
This man, at least judging by the commentary at the video, has done exactly that. He needs President Trump to commute his sentence.
After you’ve heard the case, please consider going to the White House petition page and sign it.

I’ve touted CONNECTIONS ISRAEL as a great organization in Israel helping IDF soldiers. And in full disclosure I am on the Governing Board of this group (as a volunteer).
We’ve been informed that there is a border patrol soldier whose parents passed away from cancer within the last two years, and is currently living with their twin in Haifa. They want to continue to serve but financially may have to leave the service. This soldier needs funds for basics like toiletries, rent, clothing, and so on.
I’ve given $50 to Connections Israel. You can go to their donation page:
And then to paypal where you can enter, in the special instructions, “FOR THE BORDER PATROL SOLDIER.”
This will ensure the donation gets to the right cause.
Thank you, and G-d bless. Everything helps. And please forward to others / share this information.
Many hands make light work. We’re Jews. We dig deep to help our own.
Purim is just around the corner, and IDF soldiers break out into smiles when they get a gift basket from Connections Israel.
For $15 you can give a basket for one soldier. For $450 you can give an entire unit of 30 soldiers baskets.

Full disclosure, I’m not much of a beer person – not really a drinker at all, actually. But on the basis of this ad, I’m switching on the (rare) occasions I drink beer. A company that so openly supports our soldiers has my business on that basis alone.
For only $90, donate a fleece jacket to an IDF soldier. It’s simple, it’s easy, and not only does it help an individual, the money goes to Israel’s economy. And it’s tax-deductible!

Passover is coming soon. Please consider a tax-deductible gift to Connections Israel so that IDF soldiers on duty can celebrate.

Tonight will be the first night of Channukah, and for the first time my children have their own Menorahs to light. But in looking online for Channukah images – at my daughter’s request – I found this Menorah:
I am conflicted:
- On one hand, it’s probably the tackiest thing I’ve ever seen, and highly irreverent
- On the other hand, it’s imaginative and certainly captivating to kids
And for Channukah, please support the IDF. I now wear my support for Israel’s military. Will you join me ($5 donation to www.connectionsisrael.com, a 501c3 charity) gets you this bracelet. Or perhaps a fleece coat?
Like I said, I wear my support for the IDF. And in full disclosure, I’m on the Governing Board of Connections Israel. That’s how serious I am about this charity.
