Edit requests by connected contributorEdit

I am going to request many small changes to correct errors, omissions or outdated information.

First request:

  Done I have moved that sentence down to the personal life section and copyedited it, to avoid using the text from the Fellowship's website too closely. I have also retitled the "Biography" section as "Early life", as is custom with other biographies here. —C.Fred (talk) 16:44, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for approving and making the edit!
Please change the birth place to Winthrop, Massachusetts, U.S.[1] The birth place is listed incorrectly in the Infobox and under Early Life & Education. The reference is from the Rabbi's authorized biography. I can take a picture of the page if that helps. Thanks! Teachtosing (talk) 18:03, 1 February 2019 (UTC)


  1. ^ The Bridge Builder. p. 11.

Birth place changedEdit

I went ahead and changed the Rabbi's birth place to the correct location. I couldn't wait on the change as many online news sources were using the incorrect New York location which then caused further questions and confusion. Teachtosing (talk) 21:50, 7 February 2019 (UTC)


Hi User:Espresso Addict can you please clarify more here, why you feel the section is biased. it is basically sourced from NYT article. I feel the section looks ok, however I am not opposed to removing or copy editing few lines, if you feel strongly about it. regards. --DBigXray 12:33, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

Commented out the entire section since I am yet to hear back the issues, so as to pave way for ITN. --DBigXray 19:26, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
(Sorry, I was out all day & evening.) There's no problem with sourcing from NY Times, but it's best to have several different sources -- independent of each other and of the subject -- for anything remotely controversial. Generally sections on criticism or controversy are to be avoided; it's best to integrate the material into the main flow of the article, presenting positive and negative views side by side.

All right, I will keep this section commented out. --DBigXray 05:35, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
