Young Israel of Woodmere rabbis join RCA rejection of moral equivalency


The Young of Israel of Woodmere’s five rabbis signed a statement “unequivocally denouncing” the Charlottesville, Virginia, terror attack.

In a message sent to members of the the largest shul in the Five Towns, the rabbis endorsed the position of the Rabbinical Council of America, which issued a strongly word statement that “condemns any suggestion of moral equivalency between the White Supremacists and neo-Nazis in Charlottesville and those who stood up to their repugnant messages and actions.”

“There can be no moral equivalence when it comes to Nazis, KKK, racists, and people who incite hate and commit murder,” said the YIW rabbis — Hershel Billet, Shalom Axelrod, Shay Schachter, Dr. Aaron Glatt, and Eliyahu Wolf.
