Joel Roth’s Closet

So I was looking through our blog stats (how many people are visiting, where they’re coming from, etc) and I found a couple of funny search engine referrals.

Someone out there came to the MJL blog last week by typing the following into Google: “joel roth” “in the closet”

Joel Roth is, of course, one of the Conservative movement’s leading experts on Jewish law and the author of the recent responsum on homosexuality that argued to maintain the bans on gay rabbis and commitment ceremonies.

So what was this reader doing typing those phrases into Google? Searching for some dirt on Rabbi Roth?

The runner-up for best Google search of the week: informative masturbatory jewcy
