GHISLAINE Maxwell has adopted her late father’s Jewish faith behind bars — and has been rewarded with better food and more time off work.
She gets kosher food, which is costlier, access to a Rabbi and is excused work for 25 hours from sundown on Fridays to observe the Sabbath.
She can also take a break from prison chores on Jewish holidays.
Maxwell, 61, is also eligible for the associated wine or grape juice and breaking of bread.
The details were revealed by journalist Silja J.A. Talvi, who looks into conditions at jails.
Talvi told The Sun on Sunday Maxwell was contacted in jail by a civil rights prisoner organisation called Reaching Out, based in New York.
It specifically helps Jewish prisoners and informed Ghislaine through another inmate they would be there for her.
Maxwell’s press baron father, Robert, was born into an Orthodox Jewish family in Czechoslovakia.
He stated that he had stopped practising the religion before the Second World War but still considered himself Jewish.
Maxwell is serving 20 years at Florida’s Tallahassee jail.
A spokesman for Reaching Out said: “Maxwell is in touch with our organisation.
“We have and will continue to address her needs.”
