PIDYON SHVUYIM Help An Innocent Man Get Out of Prison

$69,441 of $100,000 raised

raised by 272 people in 2 weeks

b'H
 
Ronen Boaz Nahmani, a kind, caring, Orthodox Jewish father of five children, a resident of Aventura Florida, has been given a harsh, cruel 20-year sentence (which is triple the sentence for someone actually guilty) for selling a product at a time when those types of products were largely unregulated and their sale was permitted and not illegal. His family and friends are seeking donations to cover his legal fees so that he can appeal this excessive and unjust sentence.
 
Ronen was in the business of electronic cigarette distribution.  In 2012, some of his customers requested that he obtain synthetic cannabis, which at that time was not illegal. In fact, this synthetic product was legally sold and available in convenience stores, gas stations, and tobacco/smoke stores. Ronen sold largely to these legal venues. Only recently have these products become illegal in the state of Florida, where Ronen resides.
 
Ronen sold a small amount of synthetic cannabis to a Massachusetts-based customer at a time when it was also legal in Massachusetts. However, when the customer resold it, the product was no longer legal. Even worse, the customer had a vast amount of his own products of the same type for sale, and he falsely claimed that he had received all of his products from Ronen Nahmani. Ronen was sentenced to 20 years in Federal prison for conspiracy to distribute controlled substances. 
 
Ronen has no prior criminal history of any sort. His father is an Orthodox rabbi and Ronen and his wife have raised their children to be upright, honest Orthodox Jews. The particularly sad circumstances of Ronen's case include his five lovely young children who are being raised by his wife alone in Miami. She relies on government assistance and the charity of the congregation to meet her and her children's basic needs of food, clothing and shelter. Ronen's absence has also had an extremely disruptive emotional impact on his children, including engendering nightmares, anxiety, and depression and impeding their functioning at school. At present, they are receiving counselling, but the emotional damage is extensive.
 
Ronen is currently incarcerated not in a cell but in a closed room with three other prisoners. He is unable to see sunlight or take exercise outdoors and he receives his food through a slot in the door. This is horrifying, considering that no harm came from anything he did and he sought to stay within the bounds of legality. The immense punishment is cruel and excessive.
 
His family and friends have raised $53,000 out of the $100,000 to cover the legal fees of an appeal and are seeking the remaining $47,000 . We have the utmost confidence that with the help of G-d, this legal team will be able to reduce or completely eliminate the unjust sentence Ronen and his family received. We are appealing to everyone who values halacha, justice and freedom, and everyone who cherishes the right of families to be united to contribute to this holy fund.  
 
The entire Nahmani family expresses deep appreciation to all who participate in this tremendous chesed to them. TIZKU L'MITZVOT!
