Political operative Michael R. Caputo recounts in Politico how he saved a candidate from being scammed by Sacha Baron Cohen. Caputo had his suspicions and, “In the end, I ran the pitch by Yossi Gestetner, one of the smartest public relations guys in New York City. (He had created a pivotal 2016 Trump Tower meeting for President Donald Trump with Jewish media leaders right before the New York State Republican primary.) He knew everybody and he certainly could help vet this invitation. Gestetner made a few calls, checked it out and reported back that he couldn’t tell us much either way. He was skeptical that there wasn’t information out there about Yerushalayim TV in Israel, either. That tore it; we took a pass. Later, Gestetner tipped me off that Yerushalayim TV was one of many fronts for Sacha Baron Cohen’s production company.”
The Journal News reports on the release of Sholom Rubashkin from prison as a result of the first commutation given by Trump as president: “‘This was the right step,’ said the co-founder of the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council Yossi Gestetner, who started a Twitter hashtag #IAJew in 2010 in support of Rubashkin. “The punishment did not fit the crime.’ He added that he hoped the White House and lawmakers from both parties will pass reforms in criminal justice, sentencing and prison treatment.”

Gestetner says the eruv has been ordered to be taken down in both New Jersey municipalities by Aug. 4. City leaders say it violates local rules.
