Rabbi Asher Z. Lopatin

“Rabbi Lopatin is an intellectual, but his legacy is in what he accomplished on the ground: building a warm and growing community, a mikvah, a community day school and a non-profit kosher restaurant; bringing a female clergy member on staff; collaborating with rabbis from other denominations; speaking against worker abuse, and building relations with the Muslim community in Chicago. Personally, he demonstrated what a Modern Orthodox person in the 21st century can be.”
