Mentalbloggers Take Up Arms

The rest of the story will be laid out after Shabbos. Meanwhile, a vigorous discussion has taken place on mentalblog, with representatives on all sides of this story. If you thought the characters or situation was not typical, just read some of the comments.

PS: This story can have a happy ending.
Good Shabbos all.


  • Your series is so painful for me because I'm kind of in the place your Noam is in. Just today I was telling my husband that even if we see big machar rabbis doing things that are illegal or immoral, it still doesn't change the fact that we are frum and becoming frum was the right thing to do. And right after Shabbos a friend called and we chatted a bit about how at 40, I seem to be coming to a lot of realizations and she knew what I meant when I said some of these realizations were about our community and she told me to separate the people from the religion and then I'll be okay. I'm hoping Noam's story will have a happy ending. Please give it a happy ending. A gut voch.

    The story is not about "bad people in good religion" or whatever rot. The story is about how the community deals with the evil inside it, how it trained Noam, and where that leaves him when the inevitable happens. It is about m'kariving people using deception.

    G-d willing, the ending will give you comfort.

  • The deception is universal. One has to wonder if these Kiruv clowns do it to convince others or to convince themselves?

    I'm sure the only sofek these guys have are related to their salaries i.e. "I doubt I'm making enough money."
