Rabbis Ordained in Germany

Today, in Germany, the first rabbi was ordained since 1942.

"After the Holocaust, many people could never have imagined that Jewish life in Germany could blossom again," said German President Horst Koehler before the event. "That is why the first ordination of rabbis in Germany is a very special event indeed."

Read about it in the Washington Post.

That is good.

The statement by Kucera stood out, where he emphasized the importance of becoming a rabbi over doing so at this juncture. That is quite the religious statement when you think about it.
