ROCHELLE, NY, April 1, 2003 –The College of New Rochelle (CNR) today announced
that Angela Cascarano, a 2001 graduate of the School of Arts & Sciences,
was part of a FOX 5 News team honored at the recent awards ceremony for
the National Television Academy’s 46th Annual New York Emmy Awards.
Ms. Cascarano, an associate producer, was involved in an Investigative
Journalism piece entitled “Fake Rabbi.” She participated in a sting
operation set up to catch Jerry Heller, a former car salesman, who has
performed thousands of marriages over the past three decades while misrepresenting
himself as an ordained rabbi.
The April 2002 broadcast of “Fake Rabbi” prompted hundreds of viewers to
contact FOX 5, including many who were unaware that their marriages were
a sham until they saw the segment. Due to the enormous response to
this segment, the New York and New Jersey state legislatures recently passed
bills to validate all marriages performed to date by Mr. Heller.
The National Television Academy, founded in 1946, is a non-profit organization
that fosters creative excellence in the television industry. The
NTA inspires excellence through the renowned EMMY Award, the most prestigious
honor and most coveted peer-recognition symbol of distinction in television.

was founded in 1904 by the Ursuline Order. Today, it comprises the all-women
School of Arts & Sciences, and three schools which admit women and
men: the School of New Resources (for adult learners), the School of Nursing
