interesting speaker at our synagogue

Rabbi David Nesenoff gave a talk at our synagogue on September 4.

You may remember him as the rabbi to whom Helen Thomas gave the infamous intervidew.

He was charming, erudite and very very vocal in his opinion that the people of Israel and the land of Israel and eternally linked.  He spoke about the Thoams interview, his shock at what she had to say and the repercussions he's experienced because he posted the video and it went  viral.  He got over 25,000 pieces of hate mail, some of which he's posted on his website.

Amazing and terribly sad that such a thing could happen here in America.
