Prominent Jewish Educator Arrested

One month after delivering a speech at a Harvard Square church on reconciliation in the Middle East, Jewish educator Martin Federman is facing charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct at a synagogue where the Rev. Pat Robertson was speaking about his support for Israel. Federman, cochairman of Visions of Peace with Justice in Israel/Palestine and a former Hillel director at Northeastern University, pleaded not guilty yesterday in Framingham District Court to charges that stem from his protest Sunday at Temple Beth Sholom in Framingham. According to the police report, Federman refused to leave the synagogue despite repeated requests by police and resisted arrest when he was being cuffed. (c/o Jewsweek)
