Remember the Roentgen Rabbi, otherwise known as the X-Ray Rabbi or less commonly, Rabbi Yaakov Ifergan? Known for his expert medical advice (despite lacking a medical degree), 'psychic powers,' and lately, his business advice, he has now moved into a new area, sports. The Roentgen, it appears, is responsible for basketball star Lior Assoulin's decision to sign on with Maccabi Tel Aviv and not transfer, as planned, to Betar Jerusalem.
Pity the man; It's tough being a rabbi nowdays. So many areas to master, so little time... remember the good old days when being a rabbi meant just doling out halachic advice?
