Lynn Gottlieb, a Jewish Renewal rabbi whose belief in fostering peace is so strong — or misguided — that she led two peace trips to Iran in 2008 and publicly spoke of the need for peace at a dinner here with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has been branded a “radical rabbi.”

The Republican Jewish Coalition bestowed the description in a press release that called on Rabbis for Obama to remove her name from a list of more than 600 rabbis who have endorsed the president’s re-election.
