  1. Beaten handily by Democrat Rep. Bill Pascrell.

    Let’s put this into perspective. The final vote was Bill Pascrell 146,819 — 73.6% and Shmuley Boteach 50,726 — 25.4%. This was not ‘beaten handidly’ this was a landslide. This was SB blowing smoke, and finally having his head delivered to him. The masses have spoken

  2. He is a Lubavitch. Plus, semicha is not as much ordination in the popular sense of the term as it is certification that someone studied Melicha/Basar v’Cholov/Ta’aruvos.
