Sephardi Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar has called Reform Judaism a greater danger than secularism.
In an interview published in the Orthodox newspaper Makor Rishon over the weekend, Amar stressed that Reform Judaism was fundamentally flawed, saying that if a Jew happened to be alone on Rosh Hashanah, “it is better for him to pray in his hotel and not go near them [Reform Jews]. Morever, it is better that he not pray at all than pray with them.”
Amar said the religious community needed to reach out to secular Israelis in schools, because, if they did not do so, the Reform movement would find them.
“If we are not there, then Reform Jews will fill the vacuum; God forbid this happens,” he said.
This guy’s got quite a record, too. This is what happens when you give power to just one Jewish denomination, and give it the power to dominate all others. Israel badly needs to divorce religion from state.
