Or Shalom in Washington Heights
OT1H Rav Yosef Breuer was an outspoken opponent of Zionism and also of YU
OTOH My predecessor R Ralph Neuhaus invited speakers from YU all the time, EG Dr. Israel Miller, Dr. Louis Feldman, etc. His shul proudly flew the Israeli flag opposite Old Glory.
Nevertheless, the Neuhaus family and the Breuer family had a cordial relationship. Rebetzin Neuhaus's father taught at the Breuer Yeshivah.
Is there something we can learn from this?
