Those Obnoxious Orthodox Rabbis

R. Reuven Spolter drew my attention to an article in this week's Detroit Jewish News about a female Reform rabbi in Israel petitioning to be appointed and paid by the government. Aside from the article's clear bias in favor of the petitioner, the newspaper included this offensive picture in their cover story:

In other words, she's young and noble and they're all a bunch of obnoxious, old-fashioned and mean-spirited old men. Way to play the stereotype!

There is a feedback form at the bottom of the article (link). R. Spolter also provides e-mail addresses of the editor and publisher of the paper, along with the letter he sent it (link).
