Rescinded Reform Rabbi Keren Alpert (L), and Reform Rabbi Daniel Sime (R) on Rosh Hashana. She was too busy to take the distance-learning course and they ordained her anyway, and then, what a shanda.

Rescinded Reform Rabbi Keren Alpert (L), and Reform Rabbi Daniel Sime (R) on Rosh Hashana.
Keren Alpert, a Reform rabbi at Temple Beth El in Bloomfield Hills, Detroit, was forced to resigned after temple officials said she admitted to deceiving them about her rabbinical credentials, the Detroit News reported.
Alpert's resignation was "sadly accepted," board president Raymond Rosenfeld the congregation in a letter.
"In recent days, Keren admitted that over the past five years she was not truthful with the clergy, leadership and congregation," Rosenfeld wrote last Thursday.
Rosenfeld said Alpert became a rabbinic associate in 2008 at the temple, then agreed to enroll in a distance learning-program afterward and celebrated her ordination in 2012.
But, according to Rosenfeld, Alpert never enrolled in that distance learning.
And yet Reform Rabbi Keren Alpert, apparently, didn't even get that much Jewish education.
