Internets Latin American Converts To Judaism Scroll To Kansas City Rabbi Cukierkorn

Newsmax reports on the digital age of divine intervention and a new online endeavor for a local rabbi that recently parted ways with some of his followers: "Kansas City Rabbi Jacques Cukierkorn does not actively proselytize, but he is willing to facilitate conversions to Judaism— using long-distance Internet instruction— for Latin Americans who want to become part of the Jewish people"

Sadly, here's a quick reminder that not all conversions take: Two Years After Converting To Judaism (Or Something), Tila Tequila Is Now A Nazi (Or Something)

A panel of three arbitrators unanimously ruled April 18 for The New Reform Temple, denying Rabbi Jacques Cukierkorn’s breach of contract claims against the congregation. In addition the arbitrators ruled in favor of NRT’s counterclaims for breach of fiduciary duty and for fraud.

The ruling is binding and means NRT will retain funds the congregation placed in escrow it had slated for payment to Rabbi Cukierkorn to satisfy the terms of the separation agreement signed in March 2011. The rabbi was informed in December 2010 his contract with the congregation would not be renewed when it expired in June 2012. He joined the congregation in 2000. Additionally, the panel ruled that Rabbi Cukierkorn was to repay severance payments previously made and has ordered him to make restitution to the Discretionary Fund of the Temple.

Not alot of interest in this throwaway news piece Tony. Lucky you dont have to pay for the ink he original story was printed on. The Kansas City Jewish Chronicle also determined the news wasn't worth the paper and ink it would need to be printed on.

We are pleased to note our congregation has moved on. We dont expect to hear about this from the pulpit or the newsletter. Our last rabbi is just a bad memory.

Maybe the rabbi can do stand up out at the Legends?
