As someone that has been Jewish all of my live and seen hundreds of Rabbis, I can assure you that I have never encountered such an inept rabbi and one that is potentially so dangerous. I would like to inform anyone that may be thinking of hiring Yitzhak Miller since he calls himself a "virtual rabbi" when he comes out of the virtual world into our reality, it is not a pretty site, smell, or image. I heard many other people also complain about the foul smell, lack of hygiene, and inappropriate comments. For a synagogue to let go of a rabbi in the middle of his contract, the least of our concerns, was his alleged act of vehicular manslaughter at the ATM machine. Our greatest concern was with our own safety and the safety of our children.

Disgraced Rabbi Yitzhak Miller alleged attempted vehicular manslaughter Riverside California Rabbi Yitzhak Miller

I heard that he is closing his websites!
He is really scary. He is unhirable. One should wonder which kind of lousy rabbi Yitzhak miller is that even after we are able to get rid of him, many of us still feel he is a threat to the community. From his own police report you can read that he drove his car on top of a gentile gentleman, who for some reason did not proceed with criminal charges. Perhaps the victim felt, as the rest of us do, that Yizhak's career was over. And this was punishment enough. From the experience that our congregation had, most people were very happy to see him go. There is a consensus that he is not cut for the rabbinate, and beleive me, I am not talking about his s****. />
I can't believe that this so called leader' has now set up shop on the internet Do people have any idea what kind of havoc he caused in our community? And to answer the questions he poses on the frontpage of the website: Is he scary? Will he bite? YES andYES. Now let me tell you why. Yizty is an unbalanced guy, and it goes WAY back. He just can not get it together. He was fired from the synagogue, could not get another real job, and now he is unemployable.

So I discover, that in addition to raging at the credit union and the donut shop, he has attempted to solve his problems by luring unsuspecting people who are interested in Judaism over the Internet. Little do these people know that this man has a REAL temper. We in Riverside, have all experienced it first-hand. And if you have something tasty in your hand, you better watch that too! He has attempted vehicular manslaughter so he would surely bite you!

Yitzhak Miller represents a great danger to the online community because he is not fit as a leader. Yet he spends an enormous amount of advertising claiming that he is a leader in the area of what he does. What Yitzhak Miller did for Riverside is terrorize our community and leave us with a lack of faith in Jewish clergy. This is not the type of person who should be a Rabbi

Rabbi at Riverside's oldest synagogue resigns amid complaints of conduct

By GREGOR McGAVIN
The Press-Enterprise

The spiritual leader of Riverside's oldest synagogue is stepping down, more than two months after he grazed a school psychologist with his truck during an argument over who was first in line at a drive-through ATM.

No one was hurt in the Nov. 5 fracas at Altura Credit Union in Riverside, and a judge this month dismissed misdemeanor charges of battery and hit and run against Temple Beth El Rabbi Yitzhak Miller.

Jory Yarmoff, president of the temple's board of directors, confirmed that the board has accepted the resignation.

He said that since the credit union incident, individual congregants have come forward to complain about how Miller treated them.

'The other issues predate the credit union incident. That just served to focus people's attention, ' Yarmoff said.

'Anger management was part of it. The other part of it was his ability to successfully partner with temple leadership.'

Miller resigned, effective June 30,

Past Struggles

Before arriving at Temple Beth El in July 2006, Miller served about five years as first a student rabbi, then community rabbi at Congregation Emeth in Gilroy.

Michael Oshan, president of the Gilroy temple's board, said Miller 'had a lot to offer, but there were some issues.' He declined to be specific but said anger management was involved.

Miller -- described in the police report on the ATM fracas as 6 feet tall and 275 pounds -- said in a Dec. 2 letter to the congregation that he has had 'a compulsive eating addiction' since junior high school. He said he has been seeing a therapist for almost two years for his eating disorder and the therapist warned him that 'previously unprocessed feelings would likely begin to come up in potent ways.'

Miller said he also had attempted to enroll in an anger-management program but had not yet found one that would accept someone not ordered to join by a court.

HE COULD ALWAYS LEAD A MESSIANIC CONGREGATION

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

RABBI MILLER,

YOU ACTUALLY HAVE YESHIVA CREDENTIALS AND EXPERIENCE BEING A REAL RABBI.

I GUESS YOU KNOW HEBREW TOO?

YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A MESSIANIC JEWISH RABBI.

CHRISTIANS DO NOT LIKE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO JEWISH,

JEWS DON'T LIKE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE TO CHRISTIAN.

AS A FORMER REFORMER RABBI, YOU WOULD BE A PERFECT FIT.

YOU WOULD HAVE TO LOSE THE STENCH AND BATHE MORE OFTEN BUT EVERYTHING ELSE WOULD BE GREAT.

AND THE CONVERSION  CLASSES ON THE INTERNET, I HAVEN'T SEEN THEM, BUT MAYBE THAT IS A GOOD IDEA.

MESSIANIC JEWISH RABBI IS A GROWTH INDUSTRY. THINK ABOUT IT. YOU CAN BE A RABBI ALL YOU WANT AND THOSE PEOPLE WILL HANG ON YOUR EVERY WORD.

BUT YOU HAVE TO TAKE A BATH AND CLEAN UP. STINKINESS WONT CUT IT.

IF YOU ARE GAY, BE DISCREET AND NOBODY CARES ABOUT THAT EITHER.

AT LEAST YOU WOULD BE WORKING AS A RABBI AGAIN...

Perfect?--No. Credible?--Yes

AUTHOR: Rabbi Yitzhak Miller - (U.S.A.)

Look at all the posts this person has made on ComplaintsBoard.com and RipoffReport.com and ask yourself whether these posts seem like someone "working in the best interests of humanity", or someone who has chosen to use the powerful tool we have in the internet in a way that does disservice to all of us by making legitimate critiques and complaints difficult to find.

Check RabbiYitzhakMiller.org for all the testimonials from members of the Riverside Congregation and ask yourself whether Sidney Cohen actually speaks for the community. Ask yourself whether all these people would say what they did if Sidney's comments are actually true.

Were things a "perfect match" between me and Riverside Temple Beth El? Far from it. Am I perfect? Far from it. Perfection is not the goal. Acknowledgement of our past failings, making amends for those if they have harmed someone, and serious continuous self-improvement is what Judaism and basic human decency expect of us. Neither I nor Judaism expect a person to be perfect. I stand solidly, though, on my record of continuous self-improvement and improvement of the world around me.

Look at CyberJudaism.org and see what it means to be committed to working in the best interests of humanity and the Jewish community.

Ask yourself: "who in this discussion is working to always be a better and better person? Who in this discussion is spending their time being a positive force in the world?"

If you're wondering whether Sidney Cohen's comments are credible, Call Riverside Temple Beth El at 951-684-4511 and ask any of the staff or clergy there what kind of person Sidney Cohen, how he has behaved over the years towards congregants, board members, and clergy. Ask them whether his messages and motives are well-intended.

Or, better yet, call or email him yourself and assess what kind of person he is.

B'shalom,

Rabbi Yitzi Miller
