When Michael Cohen was still living in Rochester/IL they called him MC. Master of Ceremonies. MC was the guy, everybody wanted to hang with. Life was a party with MC. He knew all the right people who moms and dads called the wrong people. The night people. The misfits, dropouts, oddballs, the losers, bohemians, freaks, pimps and drug lords. Life changed when they busted MC and called him Mickey Cohen. Just like the famous gangster. The Jewish gangster. MC didn‘t even know he was Jewish. Half Jewish. Until that day in court. „Ever been to the Holy Land?“ the judge had asked before sending MC to the penitentiary in Marion for seven years.
Like famous Mickey Cohen MC spent his time in jail studying the bible and observing the Sabbath, but unlike famous Mickey Cohen he left the slammer as a different man and did what the judge had said.
„Go back to the Holy Land!“
