Rich, If you could provide that website regarding John Hove I would appreciate it.
It seems that Hove is allied with Young Israel. My family was involved with the Young Israel of Wavescrest and Bayswater where I was Bar Mitzvah.
Here's the link:
I have some serious questions about Hove's bio as it skirts the issue and doesn't mention his involvement with Jack Hicman's Shoresh Yishai group. Shoresh Yishai was originally 2 churches:
St. John's Lutheran Church of Hicksville, which is now Praise Tabernacle, and Christ Lutheran of East Meadow which I think is now a Catholic Church. Both are on LI, NY.
My involvement with the whole thing has caused me immeasureable damage and when Lubavitch got involved, well, just read my postings. I find it interesting and unfair that a former
cult leader is now a trusted member of the Jewish establishment while, I a devout follower of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, the Jewish troubadour, is ignored, villified and untrusted by them.
I actually have an instrumental CD of the rabbi's music out. It is officially licensed by the Carlebach family I met Shlomo because Hickman's people used to go to Rabbi Carlebach's concerts.
