Today on Tablet

An Orthodox sex scandal and the money behind it

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Senior Writer Allison Hoffman has a blockbuster: the largely untold story of how Lieb Tropper, once a modest ultra-Orthodox rabbi from Monsey, New York, emerged as a central figure in setting worldwide standards for conversion to Judaism … before he was brought down by revelations that he tried to persuade a prospective convert to have sex with other men. Josh Nathan-Kazis retells, in true-crime style, the stunning 1870 murder of a prominent New York City Sephardic banker—Nathan-Kazis’s ancestor, as it happens. We will certainly try to match the excitement of these two stories on The Scroll today.
