Visionaries and leaders in every sense of the word choosing a Jewish day school education for their children – our school, Schechter Queens. The view from the other side was that a reckoning was way overdue, says The Sunday Times. Plotkin founded Melvin Capital, after leaving SAC during the insider trading blowup, in late 2014, naming the fund after his late grandfather who was a small-business owner. CIO Gabe Plotkin described the fund to Bloomberg as “a very human-intensive place. He also said that the fund has an “intense focus” on the short side (i.e. short selling). Because your wife has to prove you were married to her first, and the second, is invalid, then she can file for divorce and the marriage is invalid.
His deputy commander asked Neria to come with the means to disperse demonstrations near the Lions Gate. When he arrived, Neria noticed close to 100 Muslim worshipers who, due to their age being under 50, could not enter the Temple Mount and pray. At some point, Neria noticed a suspect who refused to leave and wanted to enter the Temple Mount by force, even though he was younger than usual. He went over to help them and informed the suspect several times that he could not enter because he was under 50. The man then tried to make bodily contact with Neria, which made him suspect that he had a weapon to attack him. Neria gave him a slight push, and the man started shooting him.

But what shocked Wall Street most was the implied violence. “Consider it the first head on a pike,” was one of the more printable quotes in a venomous outpouring which, as Plotkin later noted, was “laced with antisemitic slurs”. To some, the timing of the attack – barely a fortnight after the Trump-inspired march on Capitol Hill – seemed no coincidence, says Institutional Investor.

He established Melvin Capital, a fund that was named in honor of his late grandfather. Cabe Plotkin raised almost a billion dollars for the fund. It wasn’t’ long before the fun operated with over a billion in assets under its management. Since the start of February, Gabe Plotkin’s Wall Street hedge fund, Melvin Capital, has put on 25% – a pretty respectable showing, says Hedge Buster.

After an hour and a half walk, Doron reached safety and was evacuated to Hadassah Hospital. After a CT and MRI scan, Doron was diagnosed with four tear fractures in the neck vertebrae.

Doron could no longer compete in MMA competitions or fulfill his world MMA championship dreams.
