FYI, J. Ginsburg is not a member of the Rabbinical Assembly (Cons rabbi's association) which officially disassociates themselves from him:

He's thus not really a "Conservative" rabbi, at least, not officially, if he has resigned or been removed (I don't know which) from the RA.

I know this guy, actually not personally, but by phone and email and has or used to have, videos on youtube.

I think that as long as he has made teshuvah, he needs to be allowed to move on.

I watched a couple of his videos and they are quite good.

Your pseudonym is well chosen. FM has posted info about Conservative offenders in the past. What shmendriks like you refuse to admit is that for the most part, Progressive Jewish denominations deal with molesters quickly and appropriately.

These days. any male cleric who consoles female congregants, should only do so, if an other women is present, this sadly needs too apply to children of both sexes, under the age 18.

This resume is hilarious!

“1974 National High School Debate Champion.”

Can you imagine a man in his 50s still listing his high school awards? What an ego! Why didn’t he add the gold stars he won in kindergarten for best “show and tell?”

“House blessing”

Please tell me that there are not Jews dumb enough to pay real money for this “service.”

“Emergency pulpit subbing”

-911 “What is your emergency?”
-Help! Our rabbi is out on vacation and we need a substitute this Shabbos!
-OK. Just stay calm. Rabbi Ginsburg is on the way.

Just to let you know

The old Conservative rabbi there, did [fake] conversions without even using a Mikve

(The other) Eli

Can you imagine a man in his 50s still listing his high school awards? What an ego! Why didn’t he add the gold stars he won in kindergarten for best “show and tell?”"

Or if he scored 4 touchdowns in a single game of high school football?

Rabbi.com responds:

Rabbi.com is NOT affiliated with rabbi Ginsberg or as he now calls himself rabbi hill.
Rabbi.com offers free/premium listing to any rabbi.

"Rabbi.com is NOT affiliated with rabbi Ginsberg or as he now calls himself rabbi hill.

sounds like the BBB (better business bureau). As long as you pay a premium you are ok.

Dan

I know (knew) him. Extremely smart and accomplished guy, National Debate champion in high school is quite rare. Very sad waste of a life.Another moral-- don't hire husband wife teams because when stuff happens the congregation will pick sides, and they might pick the wrong side.
