The past week and a half Christopher has received many apologetic texts from people who attend the Sar Shalom Synagogue. Many shared with Christopher what their former rabbi had done to them, we hadn't spoken on it because things had to be confirmed. Mr Griffin had made many fake profiles and email addresses trying to contact me in the past, even making fake phone numbers and texting me. So we had to be careful. Then we found his might from being arrested and the charges that at least 6 witnesses had told us he had done. The charges were made public as well as the mugshot. His dismissal from Sar Shalom was something that was in the works for a while because of of Griffin's behavior. Many asked Christopher if he was happy for what happened to Sar Shalom by them loosing their rabbi.

In this mp3 Christopher discusses that and encourages everyone to encourage the new leadership and the people there at Sar Shalom in Texas.
Christopher was posed with the question by tons of his listeners about the lockdowns during Yom Kippur in the Jewish hot spots of New York and Israel if this is something prophetical given the nature and importance of being at the schul during Yom Kippur.
