Stung by criticism over their e-mail to congregants lauding the United Nations for recognizing the Palestinians, the rabbis of B’nai Jeshurun on the Upper West Side sent a new e-mail Thursday morning to express regret that their original e-mail did not convey the proper tone.

“We regret the feelings of alienation that resulted from our letter,” the rabbis wrote.
