Official Jury Summons
You are hereby summoned to be and appear in person before the court.
Date: Saturday September 8th
Location: Congregation Shir Hadash
The Defendant, Jacob, our forefather, will be represented by a team of notable defense attorneys. He will be charged with theft by trickery and elder abuse.
The prosecution team, lead by a local D. A., insists that the charges are serious. An expert medical witness will speak on the issue of Isaac's competency at the time of the stolen blessing. Jacob, his brother Esau, and mother Rebekah, will all take the stand.
Our thanks to Judges Irwin Joseph, Jerry Nadler, and Deborah Ryan along with attorneys Alison Brunner, Carol Gustein, Adrienne Dell, Alan Lagod, and Allen Ruby, and Judith Sklar and to Andy Altman and Robbie Pearl who will be taking a role in our evening's proceedings.
