Download PDF for this date

Miriam Levinger, wife of Hebron settlement founder Rabbi Moshe Levinger, was sentenced this week to 10 days in prison for contempt of court.

During a hearing in the Jerusalem Magistrates Court on Monday, Miriam Levinger denounced the government and police, and refused to stand before the judge.

She has repeatedly refused to appear in court for hearings on allegations that she struck a police officer.
