Rabbi Pinsker


by Rhonda Spivak


I wanted to draw readers' attention to  an article by Myron Love, a Prairies Correspondent for the Canadian Jewish News who in that publication about the new Shul in Winnipeg founded by Laurelle Harris Pinsker.

The full article can be accessed here: http://www.cjnews.com/canada/new-shul-planned-winnipeg

Love wrote "About a a year ago, the Shaarey Zedek executive told Rabbi Pinsker that the synagogue would not be renewing his contract. The executive didn’t give shul members an explanation for the controversial decision."

Pinsker’s wife, Laurelle Harris Pinsker, is president of and spokesperson for "Beit Knesset Hadash" and is planning to hold regular Shabbat services at a locationl to be determined, as well as High Holiday services at the Fort Garry Hotel.

In the  CJN article , Love reported that " When asked about the new congregation, Ian Staniloff, Shaarey Zedek’s executive director, would only say that “we wish Rabbi Pinsker well in his future endeavours.”

Love also reported that  'Shir Tikvah president Sharon Bronstone, said she had no comment on the formation of Beit Knesset Hadash."

Brownstone told the  CJN:“We at Shir Tikvah are proud to be celebrating our 10th anniversary,” she says. “We intend to continue to provide a positive and warm environment for our Yom Tov services.”

Love also reported "Meanwhile, Shaarey Zedek and Congregation Etz Chayim are in the early stages of their own merger negotiations that would presumably see Etz Chayim move from the north end to the south end at some future date."
