Bear the Cross

YNet :

KEENE, New Hampshire - Rabbi Micah Becker-Klein and Rev. Mark Ferrin went back and forth on what to do about the cross - cover it or let it be?
They decided to let it be. So last Thursday, members of Congregation Ahavas Achim gathered beneath the cross at Keenes First Baptist Church to observe Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement. Other churches offered space for services...

Intense rain and flooding closed Cheshire Countys only synagogue earlier this month, right between Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, and Yom Kippur. But with help from friends of other faiths, the congregation has continued meeting.
It is strange for the Jewish community to be in the church, Becker-Klein said. I said we need to look at it as a blessing..

Will this "Rabbi" be applauded or reprimanded ?
