Rabbi Benjamin Plotkin: 1940 #general


Peter Janovsky <pjanovsky@...>
 

Rabbi Benjamin Plotkin performed my parents' wedding on September 14, 1940
in Brooklyn, NY. I believe he was >from New Jersey.

He was apparently a left-wing rabbi because, according to my parents, he
delivered a lengthy sermon at the wedding as to why we should not become
involved in WW II -- the "party line" at that time (the Hitler Stalin Pact
period of 1939-41).

Where might I find information about Rabbi Benjamin Plotkin or generally
about left-wing rabbis during that period?
