Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz Op-Ed Asks; Are The Rabbis “Truly” The Leaders Of This Generation?

December 30, 2013

Jerusalem – In a recent thought-provoking op-ed, noted philosopher, and prolific author, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz discusses the fact that it has historically been the Jewish religious leaders, as opposed to political figure heads, who have “molded and formed” the “inner essence” of Jewry, and who have “set the course of the world” by acting as “the heads of the thousands of Israel” according to the Torah, and with that in mind, Siensaltz then proceeds to ask the poignant question; “Are the contemporary leaders of Jewry truly the leaders of this generation?”

Crown Heights-low information-irrelevant- Distraction News
So finally after three years of total irrelevancy we are once again honored to receive a letter with the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc. letter head.

I thought to myself, can this really be? Will this letter contain information as to what the CHJCC has been up to since the last elections of 2010? Will this be the letter that will inform us as to how they assisted the [Jewish] needy of this neighborhood? Will the corrupt Cabal of the CHJCC finally tell us how and where they spent $41 Million over the years?

No, it wasn’t anything like that…just another irrelevant distraction.
