R. Alfred Kolatch z"l

I have just learned that R. Alfred Kolatch z”l passed away. R. Kolatch was the author of some of the best introductory books about Judaism to have been published in the past several decades. Thousands of people took their first steps in Jewish learning by reading his The Jewish Book of Why. R. Kolatch published many books for both adults and children, for both the knowledgeable and the novice. Below is a list of some of his numerous publications. יהי זכרו ברוך.

    Was Alfred Kolatch Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist, or Humanist? Where did he get his rabbinical ordination?
