“He’s loving it there,” a person told Reuters. “Peace, quiet. He wants to stay there. He’s in the gym every day. He’s loving life.”
Cohen, 52, is housed in a minimum security camp for white collar criminals at Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, New York.
Due to the low security of the prison, it is called a camp where inmates can lift weights and use other exercise equipment, it has a basketball court, a tennis area and a baseball field, and bocce ball.
The camp is known for its substantial population of Jewish inmates such as Cohen because of its proximity to Jewish enclaves in New York City and elsewhere in the state, employing a full-time rabbi and offering kosher meals.
Frum nmates have shiurim, learn Daf Yomi, and get to go to the mikvah before the Yomim Noraim.
Cohen, according to the source, hates the food. The former lawyer was used to dining in NYC’s finest cuisines.
