BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Thousands throughout Boca Raton Thursday morning awoke to find an email from Temple Beth El, one of Boca’s reform congregations, suggesting that it is anti-Jewish to drive German made vehicles. The email promotes an upcoming program inferring that great internal conflict exists among Jews who own BMW’s, Audi’s, and Mercedes.
“That a Rabbi would allow this email to be sent is quite telling about a congregation,” said one BocaNewsNow.com reader who received the email blast. “Is Temple Beth El of Boca really suggesting that it’s a problem to drive a German made car?”
Other contacts received by BocaNewsNow.com suggest that area car dealerships may decide to cut back — or eliminate — contributions to Jewish Federation and Temple Beth El due to the email.
“Stupid, stupid email,” said an area sales professional. “For a religion to suggest that its members should give pause to buying a luxury vehicle because of something that happened in the 1930s is astonishing. It’s an important part of history, but it is, in fact, history.”
The upcoming program is part of the prelude to the high holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, holidays where Temple parking lots are traditionally overflowing with vehicles made by Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
