Cholent Controversy

The blogosphere has been buzzing about this for three days, at least, and, truthfully, I haven't said a word about it yet -- strictly because its too horrifying.

According to the article one of the great Rabbis of our generation suggested that a man might not be Jewish after he expressed a distaste for cholent. Worse, on the strength of this "evidence" the great rabbi of our generation allegedly instructed the man to undergo a ritual conversion - just to be on the safe side. I, as always, gave the great Rabbi of our generation, the benefit of the doubt, and assumed that some cub reporter at the paper got the facts wrong, or needlessly sensationalized the details.

But who knows?

[Our fine friends at Failed Messiah have been on top of this from the very begining, along with the always interesting Mister Bluke.]
