The Scheindlin Clan

This is not the most earthshaking news item but it is one of the most bizarre.

Let us tell you about Judgette Shira Scheindlin. She does not think
that the First Amendment entitles Jews in prison to eat matzos and
drink grape juice. Here is the story:

U.S. judge rules inmate has no constitutional right to matzo, juice

A U.S. federal judge has ruled an inmate in a New York jail does not have a
constitutionally protected right to matzo and grape juice. Christopher (!!!)
Henry, who was charged with first-degree sodomy, claimed permanent trauma
and malnourishment, and requested nearly US$10-billion in damages for
violating his First Amendment right to religious freedom. The man didn't
request matzo, right, for Passover, during which it is traditionally eaten.
He demanded to have the unleavened bread served daily and grape juice every
Friday. Judge Shira Scheindlin held the Rikers Island, N.Y., jail could deny
his request to maintain order and keep costs reasonable. "Providing
individualized meals to a single inmate might well foster an impression of
favouritism, which could lead to jealousy and resentment among the inmate
population," she wrote.

Well, here are some followup items. Please open this news story about
the Judgette marrying off her son:

I will add no comment.

Except one. The daughter of the Judgette Shira named in the piece,
Dahlia Scheindlin, has now become one of the worst academic leftist
anti-Israel radicals in Israel. At Ben Guiron "University" of course,
where else? You can learn about her here:

She helps run a leftist anti-Israel web magazine that censors out
