For Judaism to survive, it has to get out of the shtetl

The South African Jewish Report on YCT musmakh Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz’s recent teaching in the South African Jewish community:

“Love him or shun him, Modern Orthodox Rabbi Dr Shmuly Yanklowitz is an extraordinary human being whose controversial views are a spiritual thorn in the establishment’s side.

He is a vegan, a kidney organ donor, a thrice-ordained Orthodox rabbi, a Masters graduate of Harvard University with a doctorate from Colombia University, an author of at least nine books and an animal rights activist.

Suffice to say, Yanklowitz is not your average Orthodox rabbi. He is one of America’s most influential rabbis with a potent message for global social justice and a burning yearning for social reform.”
