The Jewish Theological Seminary in NYC, the intellectual center of Conservative Judaism, recently awarded honorary doctorates to 11 Conservative rabbis from the New York area who have served for at least a quarter century.
Among them was Rabbi Barry Kenter of the “Greenburgh Hebrew Center”:http://www.g-h-c.org/ in Dobbs Ferry. He’s a good guy who is a devout believer in Conservative Judaism (one of his two sons is studying for the rabbinate at JTS).
Kenter is a member of the Board of Governors of the NY Board of Rabbis. And he’s also very active in the interfaith world, as a founding board member of the Center for Jewish-Christian-Muslim Understanding in Irvington.
So congratulations to Dr. Kenter.
