Rabbi David Nesenoff has parlayed his role in a major media story into an editor role at the Garden City-based Jewish Star.  Last May Nesenoff interviewed Helen Thomas at a Jewish American Heritage Month event at the White House and asked the journalist if she had “any comments on Israel.”  Thomas responded with the now infamous words “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine” and “Go home [to] Poland, Germany and America, and everywhere else.”

In June Nesenoff published a story on his discussion with Thomas on his blog RabbiLive.com.  The news of Thomas’s inflammatory remarks resulted in her resignation from her position as a columnist for the Hearst Corp.
