First Argentinian Rabbi elected as Congressman resigns

BUENOS AIRES -- The first rabbi to be elected a congressman in Latin America announced his resignation from the Rabbinical Assembly.
Sergio Bergman made the announcement Saturday at the World Union of Progressive Judaism gathering in Buenos Aires, a day before the end of the event.  At the opening ceremony, Bergman said he tried for more than 20 years to have the Reform and Conservative movements work together.
"Today I am resigning from the Assembly, I am finishing my effort," Bergman said, adding that the movements needed to recognize their failures.
