Sarah Silverman's Dad

UNLOADS on Rabbi

Who Called Her Un-Jewish

Sarah Silverman's father is TEARING INTO an Orthodox rabbi who criticized his daughter's life choices ... calling the guy an a-hole ... and warning him -- "You don't f*ck with my family."

Papa Silverman is responding to an open letter published by Rabbi Yaakov Rosenblatt -- in which he goes after the comic for living an un-Jewish life -- which includes choosing her career over having a family.

Rosenblatt wrote -- "I think, Sarah, that marriage and childrearing are not in the cards for you because you can’t focus on building life when you spend your days and nights tearing it down."

He went on ... "Nothing you say or stand for, Sarah, from your sickening sexual proposal to a Republican donor to your equally vulgar tweet to Mitt Romney, has the slightest thing to do with the most basic of tenets which Judaism has taught the world – that the monogamous relationship is the most meaningful one and that a happy marriage is the key to wholesomeness."

Now for the response -- Sarah's dad, Donald Silverman, issued the following letter back to the rabbi:

"Hey a**hole.

Daughter #1 is a rabbi. Not by your standards. She's reform. How dare she, a lowly woman think god wants her to be a rabbi, created from a mere rib. Her hubby, three times nominated for a nobel peace prize was listed by the Jerusalem Post as the 49th most influential jew in the world built the worlds largest solar field in Israel.  

By the way, Sarah was also on the list. I missed your name. Oldest granddaughter is serving in the Israel Defense Forces. I'm sure you also served.Oh I forgot the orthodox don't do that.

You don't f*ck with my family."

I'm on the Rabbi's side. And as a sidenote, there are a lot of JAP's (and NO that does not mean Japanese) who don't care about the guy and having the family as much as they care about money and career. I am glad I don't have to deal with her anymore because if it had been love, she'd still be around. It worked out for the best.

p.s. When YOU put career and money ahead of love and a family - you deserve to get desperate and end up settling. It's called YOUR Karma.

Nicely done standing up for your family with, oh my gosh (!!) FACTS & representations of excellent contributions to the Jewish Nation. Regardless of religion "self-righteousness" and condescension against one's own ppl are the most disgusting. Rabbi arsehole is setting great examples for anti-semitism,...NOT.

Interesting. Ask the illustrious "Rabbi" to write his opinion of Harvey Levin..hahaha. A person has faith or they don't. They should not let ANY 3rd party dissuade them. As for the "Rabbi"..quack.

The rabbi is correct when it comes to Sarah Silverman. The woman is a disgusting pig and I would be ashamed to have her as a daughter. I can see that she is an Obaman supporter both have no class.

Silvermans dad, just like his daughter, is a foolish idiot.
