The New York Daily News reported this weekend that Rabbi Marc Schneier had been caught kissing a woman who is not his wife. The article, which appeared Saturday, included a picture of the rendezvous. Schneier is the founder and president of The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding and has appeared multiple times on Newsweek’s annual list of America’s top 50 rabbis.
The New York Post reported in late June that Schneier was splitting from his fourth wife.
Local blogger Tzvee Zahavy picked up the Daily News story this week and posed an interesting question: Will Rabbi Shmuley Boteach – who had a close relationship with Michael Jackson and offered to counsel former reality TV star Jon Gosselin – offer to counsel Rabbi Schneier, who is spiritual adviser to such celebrities as Steven Spielberg?
