Meet Bill Clinton’s Rabbi From New Jersey

Meet Bill Clinton’s Rabbi From New Jersey
BY BOB HOLT
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Former President Bill Clinton is a Southern Baptist from Arkansas, while Rabbi Menachem Genack lives in Englewood.

Call it another odd couple story, but Clinton and Genack have been corresponding for over 20 years.

Genack is also the head of the Orthodox Union’s Kosher Division. According to VosizNeias.com, he met Clinton in 1992 at a New Jersey fundraiser during the former president’s initial campaign run. Genack said, “Bill Clinton has a tremendous amount of information on the Bible, not only as literature, but also as inspiration.”

During Genack’s introduction of Clinton, the rabbi used a quote from Proverbs: “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” According to the Wall Street Journal, Clinton liked the quote so much that he used it when he accepted the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 1992.
