Openly Orthodox

This entry was posted in History on by .

Last weekend’s Jewish Week had an article on the new conversion courts established by the Rabbinical Council of America under pressure from the Israeli chief rabbinate — and the article contained a funny mistake.

The article quotes Rabbi Avi Weiss who’s concerned with this development:

“It’s no secret that in Israel today [the Chief Rabbinate] represents the haredi element,� said Rabbi Avi Weiss, leader of the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale, and founder of “openly Orthodox� rabbinical school Yeshivat Chovevei Torah.

Problem is, Rabbi Weiss calls Chovevei Torah’s ideology as “open Orthodox” not “openly Orthodox.”
