Zev Brenner? Darn. I was hoping for animal skins and clubs. Boteach is more agile. But Schochet growls fiercer.

It is a waste of time for people like R. Schochet to argue with Boteach. If people are going to take issue with Shmuley's book, it should be on the fact that it is a bad book, not the perception that he's talking about a forbidden topic (which will only give ammo to his supporters claiming that he's being censored or stymied). As someone arguing that no one should read the book in the first place, I don't understand why Schochet is giving Shmuley any more attention than he already has.

I would much rather see a historian, religious liberal, or even an atheist arguing Boteach's book than a Chabad rabbi. I would be very surprised if this leads anywhere productive.

And after intermission, round two will be "the next Chief Rabbi - this gonif or my kid"?

Look for Shmuelly to unroll his beard, and for Schochat to clench his pipe between his teeth, and tear pages out of the book, while they both bellow, "Jesus Christ."

This is the Chelm we live in: in the 21st century, a disputation about Jesus between two Jews who believe the Rebbe was atzmus ein sof in a guf.

Lo:

Ha!

THIS POSTING IS FALSE. I SPOKE TO RABBI SCHOCHET. HE NEVER HAS ANY INTENTION OF BEING ON THE SHOW AND THE FIRST HE HEARD OF IT WAS FROM ME WHEN I MENTIONED FAILED MESSIAH LOSER.

YOU OUGHT TO VERIFY THE FACT, TAKE THIS OFF OR BE SUED FOR MISREPRESENTATION.

Obviously you're not a very smart person.

Talkline sent me the email posted above.

Schochet was scheduled to be on with Boteach.

But now Schochet is mysteriously "ill" and had to cancel.

Tell my old friend Manny to stop lying to you.

Shmarya,

You know that I know the Schochet family. While I don't always agree with Rabbi Jacob Immanuel Schochet, I greatly respect this man. I am not sure if you are aware that he has been battling a life-threatening illness over the last few years. When I first heard the announcement, I was very cynical given his recent health history that he would participate in such a debate.

We will see. However, if he is not on and some claim he reneged, I will challenge your and their assumptions. Again, given that he has been battling life-threatening brain tumors over the last few years,I would be surprised for him to agree to participate in such a debate.

Well. Jerome, you've got much to be surprised about.
