Following his forced retirement from the Riverdale Jewish Center, sauna-boy-gawker Rabbi Jonathan Rosenblatt started advertising himself doing “spiritual and psychological counseling” at Scarsdale Integrative Medicine (SIM).
His reputation caught up with him and SIM dropped him unceremoniously, even claiming he was never part of their operation, but merely someone renting space from them according to the Forward.
But, as my readers know, he was listed on their website as one of their staff back in May, whatever the financial arrangements.
It would not be fair to criticize SIM too much for this lapse in vetting and judgment. They did manage to dump the chump in about two months.
It took the Riverdale Jewish Center decades to make the same decision. Even then it was a close call until they lost several hundred members (and their dues). That only happened after the longstanding story was splashed in the New York Times. To boot, SIM did it, while the Rabbinical Council of America could only come up with therapy and sauna guidelines.
