I strenuously disagree with Rabbi David Eliezrie’s contention that one who has some peripheral association with an Orthodox organization should be considered Orthodox (Letters, Aug. 3).

I’m sorry, but attending a Chabad challah-baking class or Chanukah candle-lighting ceremony just doesn’t cut it, rabbi. Our Torah defines Orthodoxy and will not countenance your attempt to “dumb down” the religion.
