Rabbis Gang Up on HuffPost!

Three essays by four Jewish religious leaders

Print Email

Yesterday appeared to be Rabbi Day on the Huffington Post, with four pieces authored or co-authored by Jewish clergy. At 11:10 in the morning, Rabbi Jennifer Krause, a professor of Jewish studies at New York’s City College, kicked off the day with a screed against the “invective, vitriol, basic erosion of civility and humanity, and the overall fever-pitch” of the health-care debate. At 3:15 in the afternoon, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, opined against a New York Times op-ed that advocated for a one-state solution in Israel/Palestine—with help from his colleague Rabbi Marvin Hier. Finally, at 4:40, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, best known for his books on Kosher Sex, weighed in against President Obama’s meeting with Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, deriding Mubarak’s position that “progress can only be made if Israel agrees to ‘freeze settlements … and agree to negotiate with all issues on the table including the status of Jerusalem and the refugees.’” Tomorrow, perhaps, they’ll have enough for a minyan.
