To whom it may concern:
I read the October 30, 2005 article "Substance abuse focus of Mount Pleasant speech" and was disgusted.
Why is the Jewish community promoting as a religious leader, http://www.TheAwarenessCenter.org/Zimmerman.html
Religious leaders who engage in such misconduct should find work outside of the clergy. Such individual have no right to use the title Rabbi. They have no place in the Jewish community in any position of authority.
Allowing such an individual to speak publicly on the topic of abuse (of any sort) and promote him as a Rabbi is simply obscene.
