Seven reasons to shop
House of Watchbands.

Although the RCA still
has an official lid of secrecy
over the Greenberg hearings
and its reported conclusion,
the investigation was said to
have accomplished part of its
goal in that it successfully
intimidated other RCA
rabbis who were involved in
inter-denominational con-
tacts — Rabbi Greenberg's
main activity.
For example, even though
Mr Lamm has not been sin-
gled out for criticism by the
RCA leadership (many of
whom have second jobs
working for Mr. Lamm at
Yeshiva University), the
Greenberg hearings created
a climate that allowed
Lamm to be attacked on the
issue of the inter-
denominational court.
Though inter-
denominational work is still
officially condoned by the
RCA, Rabbi Angel said
rabbis might now "get
scared" away from "working
with all elements of the
community" — that is,
Reform and Conservative
Jews. Modern Orthodox pro-
fessionals and rabbis also
report harassment from the
right. Suri Kasirer, exec-
utive director of the Council
for the Rescue of Syrian
Jews, said that in the wake
of the Greenberg affair a
modern Orthodox rabbi told
her: "I'm afraid to speak out.
There's so much hatred and
so much anger."
Ms. Kasirer, a former
outreach professional who
helped organize the nation-
wide "Turn Friday Night
into Shabbos" program, said
that many participating
modern Orthodox rabbis pre-
ferred not to publicize a
follow-up event because
Rabbi Greenberg would be

Ms. Kasirer said that she
once scheduled Blu Green-
berg to speak at Lincoln
Square Synagogue, only to
have a Lubavitch women's
group threaten to set up a
picket line.
An Orthodox columnist for
the Jewish Press in
Brooklyn, N.Y., said that an
invitation to address an Or-
thodox group was
withdrawn after it became
known that she once ap-
peared on a panel with Blu
Rabbi Greenberg said that
the rabbis who should be
countering the right-wing
pressure "are stepping aside
or going with the tide."
Rabbis Greenberg and
Weiss, who teaches at
Yeshiva University's Stern
College for Women, said the
repression within the RCA is
intimately linked to the lack
of modern Orthodox
strength within Yeshiva
University's rabbinical
school, where the over-
whelming majority of RCA
members receive their train-
ing and ordination.
Mr. Lamm told the recent
RCA convention that
although Yeshiva Univer-
sity tries to nurture modern
Orthodox rabbis, there are
few jobs for them because
"there are fewer major
pulpits, as the shtiebels (non-
pulpit, right-wing prayer
houses) take their toll."
Rabbis Weiss and Green-
berg agreed that basic econ-
omics may be the key to
breaking the RCA's assault
on modern Orthodoxy.
They said modern Orthodox
Jews who financially support
Yeshiva University must in-
sist the Yeshiva employ
modern Orthodox rabbis as
roshei yeshiva to train a
new generation. ❑
