Thanks for sharing that information. Here is Rabbi Schochet's letter regarding Boteach's teachings:

Greeting and blessing.

Regarding the recent controversy surrounding a book released by Shmuley Boteach entitled ‘Kosher J’ I am writing this letter to express my authoritative view in response to those who have sought my opinion on this matter.

While it is not normally my style to write letters of condemnation, having read the book, I feel it poses a tremendous risk to the Jewish community and therefore imperative to state my halachic (Jewish legal) opinion that it is forbidden for anyone to buy or read this book, or give its author a platform in any way shape or form to discuss this topic.

It is not my intent, nor does it serve any purpose to engage in any polemic. It only enhances the sensationalism surrounding the book’s release. However, in the 40 years I have spent combating missionaries across the globe, I have never read a book, let alone one authored by a purported frum (religious) Jew, that does more to enhance the evangelical missionary message and agenda than the aforementioned book. The grossly distorted message of the book violates basic premises of original and authentic Jewish tradition, thus unavoidably must be rejected for being heretical.

It is my sincerest hope that the author recognizes the error of his ways and looks to make amends by retracting the book.

Sincerely,

Rabbi Dr. J. Immanuel Schochet

Shmuely Boteach is basically the Chabad equivalent of Avi Weiss & Stevie Riskin!!!!!
He is to Chabad what Avi Weiss & Stevie Riskin are to modern orthodoxy!!!!!!

I heard him talk in youtube I dislike his style, which resembles a combination of a Black evangelical preacher and an civil rights activist.
As for how jewish he is I am not in a position to give or revoke jewishness certificates.
