Discussions in Highland Park
The Orthodox Forum of Highland Park/Edison features a variety of speakers; Gary Rosenblatt spoke in December on Responsible Journalism and the Orthodox Jewish Community. On Saturday night January 9th at 8 pm at Congregation Ohr Torah the Orthodox Forum of Highland Park/Edison is presenting Facing up to Abuse in the Orthodox Community: A Victim and a Rabbinic Leader Speak Out, with Mutti Weiss, a victim of child abuse, and Rabbi Yosef Blau, Mashgiach Ruchani at YU and current President of the Religious Zionists of America.
The question and answer section at the end was quite animated at Gary Rosenblatt’s talk. Questions were about his role in breaking the Baruch Lanner case, the pro-Israel stance of his paper and other newspapers, and why did the Jewish Week take so long to arrive in the mailbox after publishing.
