“A Realistic Rendezvous? Chicago’s Rabbi Oscar Z. Fasman and New York Orthodox Judaism”
Rabbi Dr. Zev Eleff, Chief Academic Officer of Hebrew Theological College and Scholar of American Jewish History
For decades, Orthodox Judaism in Chicago developed in “parallel” to New York Orthodoxy. Often, Hebrew Theological College in Chicago viewed the New York-based Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary as a rival more than a partner. In the 1950s and 1960s, Rabbi Oscar Fasman took important steps to help unite these two Orthodox communities. This “rendezvous” took on peculiar forms that had a lasting impact on Orthodox Judaism in the United States.
