Social Media Erupts as AFT President’s Comments Ignite Debate on Religious Practices

American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten has come under scrutiny for questioning the absence of women during an all-male Jewish prayer service. Weingarten, known for her advocacy in the education sector, made these comments in a post referencing a video by Jewish conservative commentator Mark Levin capturing the minyan outside the White House.
Social Media Backlash
Weingarten’s post ignited a flurry of responses from social media users. Some questioned the seriousness of her inquiry, with Manhattan Institute director Ilya Shapiro jokingly suggesting it could be a satire account. Political commentator Chad Felix Greene speculated that the intention was to shame the pro-Israel event, given Weingarten’s progressive stance and her wife’s role as an LGBT-focused rabbi.
This incident follows another online blow-up earlier in the week when Weingarten shared an article on the rise of homeschooling. While the article focused on various factors contributing to the trend, some social media users blamed Weingarten and the AFT’s educational agenda for the increase.
As of now, the AFT has not provided a response to Fox News Digital’s request for comment on the recent controversy.
Randi Weingarten finds herself in the midst of online criticism for questioning the absence of women at an all-male Jewish prayer service. This incident, along with a recent controversy regarding homeschooling, underscores the challenges faced by public figures in navigating sensitive topics, especially on social media platforms.
