Former rabbi of late King of Pop Michael Jackson, American Rabbi Shmuley Boteach told Bergen County’s Republican Organization Wednesday night that he wants to be their congressman and submitted his name to officially enter the New Jersey 9th Congressional District race.
Currently, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach is under fire from a fellow Canadian Rabbi Immanuel Schochet for authoring a controversial book Kosher Jesus.
Boteach has also authored more than a dozen books, most of them panned by rabbis and experts in the various fields Boteach has declared himself to be an expert in.
Boteach had been considered for the soon-to-be-vacant post of chief rabbi of England. His chance to nab that coveted position went from plausible to almost impossible when “Kosher Jesus” was published to wide criticism.
