    Very interesting article. Certainly if this article regarding FDR’s aides telling him not to meet with the rabbis is true, you can’t help but wonder why? Is it because they just dident want “old world” jews coming into the US and joining the orthodox band wagon? Or is it something else. Everyone has an agenda. The scary part is when you pick your agenda over what is right.

    Perhaps because FDR was an anti-Semite and felt comfortable (barely) only around Jews who weren’t “too” Jewish and didn’t bring up Jewish issues? See Ben Hecht’s autobiography for more details.

    And if one’s agenda is what’s right, well, that’s icing on the cake.

    Stephen Wise YM’S was a menuvel as testified to by a female gentile writer of that era in her memoirs. In addition. he hated anything that was remotely Orthodox. He was admired by all the media of that era and was considered the spokesman for American Jewry. Naturally Roosevelt listened to him.

  4. It’s worth reading this account from last year of a meeting between quite a few Rabbis (of different denominations) and the President.

    For decades the secular community had their say in Washington politics. It’s paramount that the Orthodox community be fully involved in state and national politics.
