Rotary Bans Coverage of Rabbi Paskoff's Address

For reasons perhaps only comprehensible to Lancaster Rotary Club President Alexandra Weisensale, Rotary has banned media from covering the address today about the Jewish community in Lancaster by Rabbi Jack Paskoff of Shaarai Shomayim Synagogue .

According to Weisensale, Rotary forgot to invite the media to cover the State Senate Candidates Forum a week earlier, although Jeff Hawkes of the Intelligencer Journal attended the forum and wrote a column on the subject.

At the same time she announced the ban concerning Paskoff's address, Weisensale invited the media to cover Dr. Terry Madonna's address next week concerning the presidential race.

When contacted, Paskoff said he was unaware of the media ban.
