Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, who one year ago had part of his hand shot off in a lethal attack by a gunman at the Poway synagogue he founded and received an outpouring of support that included meeting President Donald Trump, pleaded guilty to federal charges of tax fraud and wire fraud Tuesday.Goldstein, 58, pleaded guilty to his role in several long-running, multimillion-dollar schemes involving tax, real estate, insurance and grant frauds, some of which stretched back to the 1980s. Omar Meisel, the acting head of the FBI in San Diego, said the investigation uncovered $18 million in “complex financial schemes” by Goldstein and co-defendants, with the rabbi “at the center of illegal activity” that went on for years.Read more: https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/courts/story/2020-07-14/rabbi-injured-in-poway-synagogue-shooting-pleads-guilty-to-tax-chargeOur previous coverage: https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/topic/shootingSpecial episode on the shooting: https://art19.com/shows/the-san-diego-news-fix/episodes/4128cb9e-6b51-4fb9-8534-ffd049c6ae85

Learning How to Confront Hate From Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein | Kristina Davis, Mark Platte
San Diego News Fix
When asked to reflect on the tragedy that forever changed Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein 39 days ago, he thinks back to advice he received from a spiritual leader as a 17-year-old student of the Jewish faith: the way to push away darkness was with light. That advice has never been more significant than now, as Goldstein heals from physical wounds to his hands as a result of the shooting at the Poway synagogue he founded, and as he rises to meet a call to action. “I chose to react in a very specific way,” Goldstein told a packed auditorium at the University of San Diego on Wednesday night. Rather than leave him paralyzed, the trauma that left him without an index finger, killed a congregant and wounded two others has transformed him. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/story/2019-06-05/chabad-poway-hate-forum-usd
Ep. 259: Special Edition, w/ Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, Chabad of Poway:How the Rebbe Empowers Us to Become Stronger in Face of Tragedy
MyLife: Chassidus Applied
Chassidus Applied to Rosh Chodesh Iyar, Beis Iyar and Kedoshim and its relevance to the tragic shooting in Poway Rabbi Goldstein: After your harrowing experience, staring death in the eyes, where do you find the formidable energy and courage to be such a powerful and tireless advocate of spreading light and goodness? What is Kiddush Hashem? How important is it? How do we fulfill it? How do you stand strong and proud in the face of evil? What can I do to muster strength when all seems lost? How can we not get depressed and demoralized from senseless pain and suffering? What lessons do we learn from l’chatchila ariber? Where is G-d in all of this? If G-d protects us all the time and shows us miracles, why did He not protect Lori? Why did the Rebbe emphasize a Moment of Silence? As we stand at the end of the month of redemption, what lessons does this horrific event, which occurred on the last day of Pesach, teach us? What can each one if us do to make this world a better place and bring Moshiach?
