    I'm calling on the RCA to take advantage of its 2006 Annual Convention taking place on Sunday, May 7th – Wednesday May 10th at the Newark Airport Hilton Hotel to pass the following resolution.

    1) Due to the unprecedented, malicious and continuing false attacks on both the leadership and the very institution of the Rabbinical Council of America, we are instituting a public comprehensive 1 year ban on any advertising and subscriptions with the Jewish Press and Jewish Voice and Opinion (AKA: Susie Rosenbluth's Voice and Opinion).

    2) Further, we are asking members to publicize this ban from the pulpit on the second weekend in September.

    3) Further, we are asking members not to contribute any materials to these publications, not to write any letters to these publications and not to participate in any interviews for any articles.

    4) This ban will be subject to annual review by the executives.

JWB and everyone else who reads this,

I think we all need to contact Rabbi Mordechai Glick and everyone else at NEFESH to let them know about this call to action.

I personally would be terrified to find a therapist from an organization that advertises in the Jewish Press.

Here's the notice from the organization for observant therapists:

If you haven't already noticed it, you can find the Jewish Press announcement about Nefesh's "Find a Therapist" service on the bottom of page F4 of this weekend's edition. This is the beginning of an attempt to inform the Jewish world of this exciting and innovative service which will undoubtedly fill a real need. There are obviously many orthodox people who would like to get help from an orthodox therapist but just don't know how to find someone because they are too concerned about anyone finding out that they have problems, to ask! This service allows them to search through the names of many therapists and see which ones offer the services they need in the location that is convenient for them. They can even choose a therapist on the basis of language (e.g. those who would be most comfortable with a Yiddish, Hebrew or Russian speaking therapist.) Once people find out about the service, it will undoubtedly attract a lot of interest.

This, of course, is wonderful for the orthodox consumer of mental health services. But it is equally wonderful for YOU, the therapist, for it offers you a source of referrals that you would not otherwise have had. As I wrote a while ago, I know from first hand experience that these services do work!

As an added bonus, this service is a real benefit to your organization, Nefesh, by providing it with additional revenue to be able to serve you better.

We need you to help make this the success it can and should be. You can help, first of all, by signing up to the service. The more names on it, the more useful it becomes , and the more useful it becomes, the more benefit everyone (consumer, therapist and Nefesh) gets from it! To sign up, simply go to the Nefesh website (, click on "Find a Therapist", and then click on "Click here to add your member.." and fill in the details. The service is only open to Nefesh members. Please arrange for payment of the $100 yearly listing fee by contacting the Nefesh secretary at secretary@nefesh,org

You can also help by publicizing the service. I will soon send you a poster that you can post to help let people know about it. In the meantime it would be VERY helpful if you would arrange for an informational article to be placed in your organizational newsletter, or, even better, in any newspaper or magazine that you have a connection with. If you'd like, I'd be happy to write the article, or you could write the article yourself. I you do write it yourself, please send me a copy first, just to make sure the details are accurate. Also, if you write a regular article in any Jewish publication, it would be wonderful if you could inform your readership about the service.

If you have any questions, suggestions or feed back, I'd love to hear from you.

I think the ramaz issue is much bigger than this.
