We the undersigned are deeply disturbed by the ban issued against Rabbi Nosson Slifkin and his writings.
We are specifically concerned about the following:
1. What appears to have been a rush to judgment.
Many signers of the ban did not read the books in question. Some relied on misleading excerpts from the books as compiled by opponents of Rabbi Slifkin; many more simply relied on what they were told by those opponents.
Further, Rabbi Slifkin was apparently not given the chance to defend himself, and few
Jews For A Re-Evaluation Of The Rabbi Nosson Slifkin Ban is made of of Jews worldwide who are concerned by the Rabbi Slifkin ban and seek to heal the rift that has been torn in our communities as a result of that ban.
At this time we have no official website. For a history of the Rabbi Slifkin Ban and it repercussions, please see Hirhurim:
