Rabbi Kula calls out ADL on statement against Mosque


“The Anti-Defamation League’s statement drew criticism almost immediately.”

“The ADL should be ashamed of itself,” said Rabbi Irwin Kula, president of the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, which promotes interethnic and interfaith dialogue. Speaking of the imam behind the proposed center, Feisal Abdul Rauf, he said, “Here, we ask the moderate leaders of the Muslim community to step forward, and when one of them does, he is treated with suspicion.”

And institutions ranging from churches to College chaplains have enacted hiring freezes and clergy lay-offs.
