  1. That's the Chabad rabbi of stamford, where I grew up, Rabbi Yisrael Deren. Truly amazing person. Here's an article by his wife, Vivi, on helping to take care of Noah's parents: http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/2076091/jewish/Driving-Home-from-Newtown.htm

  2. re: The Tefilin.

    The father was an onein.

  3. I wonder why the first rabbi is wearing the tallit like a scarf. If it doesn't cover the shoulders, then it's like he's not wearing it at all. Perhaps, since it is not a real prayer service, and there is a machloket about wearing a tallit except in the morning.

  4. he looks Reform to me, and that is how Reform wear the tallit

  5. He's a conservative rabbi.

    The talit is part of the uniform.

    Whether or not its chayav b'tzitzis is not the issue.

    Rest assured, you need not concern yourselves about his having made a berocha l'votolo, as he probably did not make one at all.
