Good for Roger Cohen

Two days ago, I posted on this blog an invitation from Rabbi David Wolpe, of Sinai Temple in Los Angeles, to Roger Cohen of the New York Times, to come visit the temple and talk to its congregants, half of whom are Iranian-American. Many of these congregants have stories about life as Jews in Iran that conflict with the quasi-benevolent picture Cohen has drawn in recent days.

Yesterday, Rabbi Wolpe told me that Cohen has accepted the invitation, and will visit the temple on March 12th, to meet with his congregants, listen to their stories, and take their questions. I'm looking forward to his column about the experience.
