A leading Open Orthodox rabbi has defended the progressive movement against attacks made last week by Rabbi Yaakov Perlow, the head of the ultra-Orthodox organization Agudath Israel.
Rabbi Yaakov Perlow, of the ultra-Orthodox Agudath Israel, doesn’t approve of Emily Hauser’s Conservative Judaism. Well, guess what? She doesn’t approve of his, either.
A top Orthodox rabbi condemned other streams of Judaism and called the religiously progressive Open Orthodox movement heretical at the Agudath Israel gala.
