One response to “Community Mental Health forum on July 7

    I find it ironic that Rabbi Sam Cohon is hosting this Community Forum on violence and mental health considering the fact that he has been arrested and jailed for Domestic Violence. Yes, he physically assaulted his current wife back in 2007, got arrested by Pima County Sheriff’s Department, and avoided prosecution by getting his current wife to not testify against him. His hypocrisy knows now boundaries.
