Ultra-Orthodox Jewish View of Elena Kagan

An interesting article caught the eye of RS member Matt Olesh.  A recent CNSNews.com piece, “Jewish Clergy Group: Elena Kagan Isn’t ‘Kosher’ to Serve on Supreme Court” reports on the views of the Rabbinical Alliance of America.  Although the title refers to “Jewish Clergy Group,” it’s important to understand that the Rabbinical Alliance of America is ultra-orthodox and its leaders have taken fundamentalist views on many issues in modern-day life.
