I have learned that the so-called Rabbi Reuben Katz has been arrested for illegally selling sacramental wine and say, “It serves him right.” There exists no such thing as Sacramental Wine for Jews. We Jews have no sacraments and are not required to drink intoxicating liquor to worship God. No wonder Katz was arrested while praying. God would not hear his prayers.
