  • Why B’nai Brith Canada Defended Michael Coren’s Anti-Semitism

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    March 5, 2012 | 11:54 am

    B’nai Brith Canada is an organization whose stated purpose it is, like our excellent Anti-Defamation League here in the United States, to defend Jews against attack. It’s run by Frank Dimant whom I only ever met over the phone and who appears to be a gentleman. But that begs the...

  • Jews Must Demand a Relationship of Full Equality with Christianity

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    February 28, 2012 | 10:41 am

    My much-publicized dispute with Canadian TV host Michael Coren last week taught me valuable lessons about the Jewish community and the new relationship with our Christian brothers and sisters.

    For those of you who missed it, I was invited on to Coren’s Sun TV show to promote my...

  • A thank you to a political rival for my son’s nomination to West Point

    By  Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    If I run for Congress in New Jersey’s Ninth district, I will be squaring off against either Congressman Steve Rothman or Congressman Bill Pascrell, who have been squeezed into the same district and who are competing against each other for their party’s nomination.

    Rothman and I...

    February 6, 2012 | 10:35 am

    Rabbi Shmuley Boteach has sent a letter declaring his intent to run for Congress in New Jersey’s newly formed 9th District.

    Boteach sent the letter of intent to the offices of the Bergen County Republican Organization by the Jan. 31 deadline but has not decided definitively to run,...

  • Opinion: I’ll send every Chabad emissay on Earth a Copy of Kosher Jesus

    January 17, 2012 | 10:14 am

    When Rabbi Shmuley Boteach approached me to read the manuscript of his newly published book Kosher Jesus, I was reticent and even a bit cautious given the massive and diverse audience of people that would likely be affected by his unique perspective on the subject of Jesus. Upon...

  • Rabbi Wolf’s Continued Incitement Over My Kosher Jesus Book

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    January 11, 2012 | 1:12 pm

    The only reason I have decided to respond once again to Rabbi Wolfe and the legion of hatemongers he now heads, is for the sake of my children. I raised them to love Chabad for its ahavas Yisrael, its heart, and its humanity. Read the comments that are attached to Rabbi Wolfe’s...

  • Tim Tebow Infiltrates the Secular Cathedral of Sport

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    January 10, 2012 | 11:29 am

    On CNN a few weeks ago I was asked whether I agree with the sentiment that Tim Tebow’s religious displays in football games are overdone and out-of-place. “Oh yes,” I replied, “it certainly is. Faith should have no place in sport. Indeed, I believe that the only thing that...

  • Opinion: Lord Shmuley?

    The first time I met Shmuley Boteach, it was 2 p.m. on a Thursday; he was sitting in the lobby of the Luxe Beverly Hills, and he asked me if I wanted to go outside for a beer and a cigar.

    My kind of rabbi, I thought.

    This was four years ago. Until then, I’d kept my distance. The...
