Sarah Silverman’s father has published a letter bashing an Orthodox rabbi who slammed his daughter for leading an un-Jewish life.
Rabbi Yaakov Rosenblatt published a letter criticizing the comedian, saying:
“I think, Sarah, that marriage and childrearing are not in the cards for you because you can’t focus on building life when you spend your days and nights tearing it down … Nothing you say or stand for, Sarah, from your sickening sexual proposal to a Republican donor to your equally vulgar tweet to Mitt Romney, has the slightest thing to do with the most basic of tenets which Judaism has taught the world – that the monogamous relationship is the most meaningful one and that a happy marriage is the key to wholesomeness.”
Sarah’s pop, Donald Silverman, didn’t like the rabbi lecturing his daughter, so he fired off a letter of his own:
Daughter #1 is a rabbi. Not by your standards. She’s reform. How dare she, a lowly woman think god wants her to be a rabbi, created from a mere rib. Her hubby, three times nominated for a nobel peace prize was listed by the Jerusalem Post as the 49th most influential jew in the world built the worlds largest solar field in Israel.
By the way, Sarah was also on the list. I missed your name. Oldest granddaughter is serving in the Israel Defense Forces. I’m sure you also served.Oh I forgot the orthodox don’t do that.
You don’t f*ck with my family.”
Sarah’s pop knows how to go H.A.M — pun totally intended.
