Dershowitz: “…I will not quietly accept temple Emanu-El’s hypocrisy and cowardice. Nor should you.”
In a time of rising anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, the most prominent Reform synagogue in New York City, Temple Emanu-El, has cancelled a talk by Alan Dershowitz, one of Israel’s most forceful public defenders.
The synagogue’s board cites as its reason to withdraw their invitation an allegation that Dershowitz sexually abused women — an allegation that the shul’s own rabbi agrees is fraudulent.
Read Dershowitz’ account of this horrid episode here. It describes yet another despicable failure of Jewish leadership in our time.
