Reform Rabbi Eric Yoffie is not planning to meet with Israeli President Moshe Katsav because Katsav has refused to address him as a rabbi. Yoffie will not be among those Diaspora Jewish leaders who pay official visits to Katsav next week when they gather in Israel for the 35th Zionist Congress, Ha’aretz reported. Katsav has said in the past that until the Knesset officially recognizes the Reform movement, he will not do so.
