President Katsav: Conservative Rabbis Rabbis

israel’s president Moshe Katsav digs himself (and his mentor, Sefardic chief rabbi Shlomo Amar) deeper into a PR hole. Katsav has told the Conservative movement that he will address their rabbis as “rabbi.” Exactly how he intends to explain this to the Reform movement, whose rabbis he refuses to call rabbi, is, to say the least, unclear.

    President Katzav is just following the mold of R’ Moshe Feinstein on addressing heterodox clergy.
