I was delighted to be contacted by Stewart Ain for his article, “U.S.-Israel Tensions Now Hitting Pulpits” (April 23), since I do not believe in the 12 years I have served as rabbi at West End Synagogue: A Reconstructionist Congregation, I have ever been asked to comment on current issues for a piece in the paper.
It was hard to believe then, when I read the article, that although he spoke to “a dozen rabbis,” not a single quote nor reference of the eight rabbis mentioned was made to any women who serve as rabbis around the New York metropolitan area, with whom I assume he spoke. It was unfortunate that since he took the time to ask a Reconstructionist rabbi what she thought, there was not a way to be as broad-based in his reporting as the article claimed to be.
