Non-Orthodox groups have reacted angrily to Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar’s comments about them in an interview given to the Makor Rishon newspaper ahead of Rosh Hashana on Friday.

Asked whether it would be better for a secular Jew who happened to be away from home on Rosh Hashana to pray with a reform congregation or by himself in a hotel, Rabbi Amar said it would be preferable to pray by himself.
