Moetzes: ‘Open Orthodoxy’ Not a Form of Torah Judaism

NEW YORK - The Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of America released a strongly worded kol korei on Monday declaring that “Open Orthodoxy,” and its leaders and affiliated entities — such as Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, Yeshivat Maharat and International Rabbinic Fellowship — “have shown countless times that they reject the basic tenets of our faith, particularly the authority of the Torah and its Sages. Accordingly, they are no different than other dissident movements throughout our history that have rejected these basic tenets.”
