A Black rabbi on a mission. [Monday, Mar. 17th, 2008|11:20 pm]
The richest girl in town.
As the first African-American member of the Chicago Board of Rabbis and of numerous mainstream Jewish organizations, Rabbi Funnye (pronounced fun-AY) is on a mission to bridge racial and religious divisions by encouraging Chicago’s wider Jewish community to embrace his followers — the more than 200 members of Beth Shalom B’nai Zaken Ethiopian Hebrew Congregation.

“I am a Jew,” said Rabbi Funnye, “and that breaks through all color and ethnic barriers.”
