A letter published in last week's issue as well as several others slated for publication in the coming weeks, are critical of our editorial comment several weeks ago regarding Agudath Israel of America's Avi Shafran's penchant for addressing religious issues in non-Orthodox publications.

Rabbi Avi Shafran And The Jewish Press

18 Tammuz 5762 – June 28, 2002
We are saddened by some assertions made by Agudath Israel of America spokesman Rabbi Shafran in last week's Forward newspaper.

And we will not now address the controversy. However we cannot leave unremarked some of Rabbi Shafran's comments.
