The rabbi, the parrots, the journalist and the bloggers

I know I'm not breaking any ground here, but Rabbi Hershel Schachter has addressed the much-discussed topic of Jews, women, parrots and monkeys.

In the Jewish Week, Gary Rosenblatt quotes some anonymous defenders and detractors of Rabbi Schachter's views. (Note that noone is willing to go on the record defending him!)

First blogosphere notice was taken on hirhurim, where the pseudonymous blogger praises R' Schachter's remarks as "excellent material for public education." My take is in the commments. I also have some comments in the Protocols discussion.

But seriously, read today's earlier entries for a fuller perspective on Jews, rabbis and parrots. TrackBack
