    A Jewish charity co-founder who claimed he crisscrossed the globe rescuing Torahs as a "Jewish Indiana Jones" has surrendered to face mail and wire fraud charges after authorities said he duped benefactors by fabricating dramatic stories about sometimes dangerous trips, including to concentration camp sites in Poland and Germany.

    Menachem Youlus, who owns the Jewish Bookstore in Wheaton, Maryland, where he lives, was charged in a criminal complaint unsealed in federal court in Manhattan and was released on Wednesday on $100,000 (£61,000) bail.

    His attorney, Paul Rooney, said: "We deny this accusation, and anything else we have to say will be said in court."

    Court papers said 50-year-old Youlus carried out the fraud from at least 2004 until last year, pocketing hundreds of thousands of dollars through the Save a Torah charity he co-founded in 2004 as a nonprofit organisation. A criminal complaint said he passed off Torahs he bought from US dealers to synagogues and congregations nationwide, sometimes at inflated rates.

    What the heck is the matter with you with these transparent anti-Semitic threads....
    ...why don't you take up a more constructive hobby.

    Ever hear of Jews who have benefited all of mankind with breakthroughts in medicine or with wonderful inventions???

    BTW, I don't know if I ever mentioned this, but the pic in your avi....that is one of the light switches in my home, as it was originally a church.

    It remains the only thing you and I have in common.

    Work on it.

    Ask yourself how you came to perceive, telling a true story in the Religion and Ethics forum about a persons ethics and religion is antisemitic ?

    I have a light switch that memorializes how God offers protection and guidance to children.

    See what I mean about how little we have in common...
    ...I consider that one of my blessings.

    Did you steal the "boner" from the church?
    You used to perplex me, normally females with a limited attractiveness usually develop an interesting personality, so what happened to you?

    Since you told me to "go take a shower" eg, "go get gassed" once, I'd say she's correct.
