Over Shavuot, I had some more guests from the place where my daughter works for abused girls from chareidi backgrounds.

Many of these girls have stories that would mamash make you weep, about the level of cruelty and depravation they have been exposed to – within their own families.

But not all of those girls were physically or bodily abused.

And the girls that were *only* having to deal with emotional and mental abuse and manipulation actually have it the worst of all, in many ways. Because very people understand the torture they’ve actually been through.

====

I was having a conversation with someone yesterday who has small kids in gan in Jerusalem, about what parents can really do, to keep our children safe from abusers.

The first response is to pray, and to ask God to protect our kids from all harm. Because parents can’t hover over their kids’ shoulders 24/7 – and even if we could, somehow, that would still be mentally-ill behaviour and very harmful for our children’s development.

Getting that balance between ‘protection’ and ‘suffocation’ is tricky, for sure, especially in our world.

Personally, if I didn’t really believe in Hashem, and really try to work on my emuna that Ein Od Milvado, I would probably also be one of those psycho parents who won’t let their children out of their sight, and who uses their kids mobile phone to eavesdrop on their conversations (without them knowing…) and to ‘track and trace’.

Sigh.

====

So, prayer is the parent’s first line of defense.

But there is something else that can also have a very powerful effect on whether our children will be targeted by abusers, and that’s how much the parent themselves creates an ‘atmosphere of abuse’ in the home.

I’ve written a bit about this before, but today I wanted to do more of a deep dive on the subject. It’s not an easy topic to cover, and I hope God will give me the right words, here.

Let’s start with a story.

====

On Shavuot morning, I walked over to the Rav’s ‘outdoor shul’ on Ido HaNavi.

It was totally packed, and there were no chairs, so because I had a long walk to get there, and also a long walk to get back, I went to the back of the courtyard, where I knew there was a wall I could sit on.

The area was full of small Shuvu Banim boys, throwing half-full bottles of water up in the air tied to plastic bags that acted as parachutes. I nearly got hit in the head by one as I walked over the wall, which is when I realised why no-one else was sitting there…

So, I sit down, and keep my eyes peeled so that if a ‘bottle rocket’ heads my way, I can hopefully move or duck before it hits me, and that’s when I noticed an older boy, around 11-12 years old, that just didn’t look like a Shuvu Banim kid, despite his peyos.

This older kid was engaged in ‘wrestling’ games with the younger kids – not unusual at all.

But over the next five minutes, I noticed a couple of things that were starting to disturb me.

====

This older kid was really trying to hurt the smaller boys he’d ‘captured’.

And not only that, when the small boys had clearly had enough, he wasn’t letting them go.

And not only that, at one point, he ‘captured’ two small boys, and started roughly marching them away from the courtyard, to take them ‘to prison’.

The boys were struggling to get away from him, and he was just doubling-down, with a pretty nasty look on his face, and basically man-handling them out the back of the courtyard.

At that point, one of the kids, who was maximum 5-6 years old, started screaming at the top of his voice ‘Don’t touch me!! Don’t touch me!! Get away from me!!’

====

I’d been watching the bully for 5 minutes, but I still didn’t know if it was just a game, albeit a sadistic, yucky one.

But as soon as I heard that small kid say those words, I got up and went over to the bully, and asked him what the hell he was doing.

He glared at me, but let the kids go.

And I returned to my wall.

====

On the walk back home, I was thinking about what happened a lot.

And I was thinking about how that small Shuvu Banim kid had been excellently trained by his parents, to stand up for himself, to respect and validate himself, and his feelings, and to firmly assert his boundaries, in the face of an ‘abusive outsider’.

As soon as he started yelling out ‘don’t touch me!!’, that gave me, the adult passerby, the clear message that I could come and intervene.

But if he hadn’t have reacted like that….it would have been much harder for me to read the ‘cues’ to know if I should get involved or not, to chase the bully away.

====

Sometimes, it’s hard for us to create an environment where our kids can really stand up for themselves, respect and honor their own experience of what is occurring, and assert healthy boundaries.

And it’s particularly hard if we’re training our kids to ‘obey us’, or to ‘back down’ from doing what is right for THEM, but may be inconvenient or against what we, as their parents, prefer.

I’m not even talking here about physical abuse.

====

It’s clear, obvious, that if a parent is physically abusing their kid, then they are already teaching their kid that their physical boundaries effectively don’t exist.

If you are slapping your kid around, and not letting them fight back, and punishing them even more harshly if they dare to try and fight back – you may as well just paste a big ‘come and abuse me’ sign on their foreheads.

Except you don’t have to.

Because abusers have a sixth sense, and they can sniff these kids out all by themselves.

====

That’s hopefully obvious.

What’s way less obvious, is that emotional and mental manipulation of our kids can also achieve the exact same dangerous ‘conditioning’, that abusers can so easily exploit.

When kids grow up in homes saturated with the message that ‘the grown up is always right’, and that ‘the grown up can never be challenged’, and that ‘the grown up must always be obeyed, even when that feels totally wrong to you and is against your best interests’ – then that kid’s protective boundaries are also being dangerously eroded.

====

As parents, we try our best.

But we also have to recognise that we are also bonkers, at least some of the time.

And at least some of the time, we are operating from a place of bad middot, and not from a place of ‘perfect chinuch’.

And at least some of the time, we do put our kids in situations where we want them to go along with what is best for us, and not what is necessarily right for them.

If any parent believes they never do this – they are totally lying to themselves.

We all do this, at least some of the time.

(Wherever you hear lots of speeches about how important it is to ‘respect the parents’, you can be sure what’s described above is happening on a regular basis…)

====

The point here is not to say we can never put our needs and preferences ahead of what our children’s needs and preferences.

That’s not realistic, and this is not about pinging from one extreme to another.

What I AM trying to put across, is that even if we expect our kids to do certain things that they feel are not in their best interests, we can’t just pull the ‘I’m the grown up here, so obey me or else’ shtick on them.

We have to encourage them to have their own opinions – even if they are diametrically opposed to ours.

And we have to RESPECT and protect their right to have their own opinion, even if we strongly disagree with it.

And that needs to start at a very young age.

====

Let me tell you another story.

One of my kids has very different opinions from me on the whole ‘gay’ issue.

She’s much more accepting, much more understanding of the struggles that is going on inside the souls of many gay people, at least in the modern orthodox community of Jerusalem.

Over the last couple of years, we have been having some very interesting discussions, and I have been learning a great deal from here about what is really going on.

Like, for example, all of the gay young women she knows come from very broken, very dysfunctional homes, where ‘marriage’ and ‘family life’ were synonymous with hell on earth. (And that’s the ones who weren’t being sexually abused by their ‘frum’ fathers and brothers…)

Before Rosh Hashana, when she asked me if I’d be OK if three of her gay friends came and stayed in my house for two days, for the chag, we had a full and frank discussion, about what I would and wouldn’t tolerate.

====

I told her straight: I’m very happy for them to come, on the condition that I don’t have to sit at the table on Rosh Hashana listening to a whole bunch of LGTB++123whatever cack.

If they want to come to the house as my fellow Jews, and to leave all the ‘labels’ behind for two days, then let them come b’simcha.

They came, and we all got on well.

Why?

Because they were accepting me for who I am, and I was accepting them for who they really are – beautiful souls that have been through tremendous trauma, and who needed a place for Rosh Hashana.

====

On Shavuot, one of them came back again, this time covered in even more tattoos, including a massive ‘pattern’ in black, all over her wrist and lower arm.

I hate tattoos.

Mamash, I hate tattoos, and the more tattoos a person has, the more I understand that they are suffering tremendously, inside, because tattoos are just a socially-acceptable form of self-harm.

So, I was feeling bummed out about the tattoos, when my daughter explained something to me:

Mum, her arm was covered in scars from where she’s been burning herself and cutting herself. Since she got the tattoo to cover all the scars up, she’s had a lot more self-confidence.

Let’s be clear, I still hate tattoos.

But now I understand way more about why my guest was going nuts, covering her body in permanent ink, and that understanding is helping me to feel a lot more compassion towards her.

====

Let’s bring this back around to ‘abuse in the home’.

That tattoo’d guest of mine was not physically or bodily abused in the home.

If you met her “Class A Narcissist’ mother, you would think she was the cutest, frummest, kindest little woman on the planet.

But my guest endured such horrible mental and emotional abuse from that ‘cute, frum woman’, she is still struggling to hold herself together (and in many ways, she’s not holding herself together.)

====

The Jewish community currently has a massive problem.

For the last 350+ years, we have been getting our cues and our messages about how we should treat our children, and how we should treat others, from a bunch of spiritually-corrupt, mentally-ill, highly abusive hypocrites.

These hypocrites hold others to impossibly-high standards in public, while giving themselves carte blanche to do whatever they want behind closed doors.

These hypocrites teach us that ‘might is right’, and that children, and people generally, should be ‘forced’ into doing things against their will.

They teach that people in positions of authority can never be questioned.

That it’s ‘bad’ to have your own opinions, and to stand out from the crowd.

And some of their biggest weapons of control are guilt, manipulation and threats of being ‘shunned’ or ‘cancelled’ for daring to disagree.

====

We win this spiritual battle against the Erev Rav ‘leaders’ who have taken over our Jewish community by distancing ourselves from their tactics and their teachings, as much as possible.

Sometimes, it is so very hard for me to give my children the space they need, to become healthy, spiritually-connected, self-aware adults.

Sometimes, my fears about ‘what can happen’ really get in the way of just letting them figure life out on their own terms, in their own way.

But the biggest present I can give my children is teaching them how to think for themselves, and not just to blindly follow the dictates of other people.

Even when that ‘other person’ is their mum.

====

Being a parent is the hardest job in the world, for all of us.

But the point is this:

Encouraging your child to ‘be them’, and giving them the space to say and do things that you don’t always like, and don’t always agree with, and respecting your child’s mental and physical boundaries is the single best line of defense against abusers.

Together with praying for their safety.

====

Let’s end with this, a quote from the self-righteous ‘Message’ from Penina Taylor, the editor of the ‘Unorthoboxed’ website.

“This blogger is of the opinion, and she is by no means alone in this, that trans people are invalid and should not be given a voice, but rather, must be silenced at all cost – and these anti-trans activists will go to no end to silence them.”

I’m pulling this out, because I want to give you an example of how ‘unhealthy dialogue’ looks, in real time.

(Taylor is talking about me, here, BTW, in case you hadn’t grasped that)

====

God forbid, I don’t think any human being on the planet is ‘invalid’.

I DO have huge problems with ‘invalid ideas’ and agendas and behaviors, that are evil, anti-God, and piggy-backing off young people’s inner turmoil to encourage them to undergo radical surgery and other harmful experimental procedures that can never be reversed if they change their mind in the future.

If Taylor was really interested in giving people with different opinions a voice, instead of just pushing the anti-Torah agendas and brainwashing of the Frankist-Reform paymasters of ‘Unorthoboxed’, then the right thing to do would be to give someone like Miriam Grossman a column next to ‘Shuli Transwoman’.

====

Or maybe, Taylor should run a column from the growing numbers of people who went through the ‘trans’ process – only to find that it left them scarred, ill, and even more miserable than when they began. Like Chris Binford, below. For example.

====

That’s what real journalism looks like – it provides balanced, helpful content for readers to make up their own minds about the issue, instead of just trying to brainwash them.

How is that, for a radical idea?

====

If my daughter asks me if a ‘trans’ can come for a meal on Shabbat (and at this stage, anything is possible…) what am I going to tell her?

I am going to tell her that IF that person is:

a) A nice human being and pleasant to be around generally;

and

b) Can respect me, and my belief in God’s Torah, at least enough to focus on other areas of their life that are not LGFT123++whatever related for 25 hours – then come with pleasure!

====

I live in a world where people are so much more than their sexual orientation.

I live in a world where I can find so many other things to talk about and discuss than just ‘gender’ or relationship preferences.

There is so much more that connects us, as people, as Jews, than all this ‘trans’ or gender cack.

We’re souls, remember.

Not just bodies.

And if people are connecting to their souls and transcending their bodies, in whatever modest way that might be happening, then we’ll find plenty of things to talk about and ‘connect’ through.

But if someone is a mentally-ill narcissist, who wants to spend a whole day forcing others to listen to inappropriate details about their personal choices and private life – then stay the heck away!

Because that is grossly abusive behavior.

And ‘respect’ goes both ways.

====

UPDATE:

I just spent the last two hours watching Matt Walsh’s ‘What is a Woman’ documentary on the Daily Wire.

I paid $14 to do that, and it was TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!

Watch the official trailer below (not at all shmirat eynayim  friendly, FYI.)

====

I watched it with my daughter (the one referred to above) – she was totally blown away.

All the lies being told about biology literally just exploded in a puff of smoke…

Highly recommended.

(And btw, just watch how totally abusive all these brave ‘fighters for transgender rights’ actually are…. We have to agree with whatever they believe – even when that flies in the face of objective reality – but they get to tell us that all our beliefs and ideas are wrong and ‘bad’. Classic.)

You might also like this article:

One of my friends sent me a link to ‘Unorthoboxed’ latest ‘letter from the editor’.

It’s referring to stuff discussed on this blog, HERE, about how all the ‘trans’ stuff is being stealthily shoved down the throat of the orthodox community by people and publications who are anything but.

You will be shocked – shocked!!! – to discover that the editor of ‘Unorthoboxed’ feels she has done absolutely nothing wrong, foisting all this semi-pornographic trans propaganda on her readers, and trying to make it seem like this is all just about a simple difference of opinion.

We are back down that rabbit hole of ‘Da’at Torah’, or ‘Da’at Me’.

====

So anyway, my friend sent me a link to the latest self-righteous rant from the Unorthoboxed editor, that you can read HERE, if you have nothing better to do with your time, like having a root canal or cleaning a toilet.

And also told me how hypocritical she is finding this whole ‘we silence no dissenting voice’ cack on the Unorthoboxed website, because for sure they have recieved a bunch of letters complaining about all this anti-Torah ‘trans agenda’ pushing – and they haven’t printed a single one of them.

Talk about being in an echo chamber.

My friend is currently debating sending a ‘letter to the editor’ herself, just to see if they will actually print it.

Personally, I’m not holding my breath.

====

But in the meantime, I decided to go and check out their letters to the editor page, HERE.

Apparently, they only have one letter.

And it’s from a woman named Hannah Katsman, who writes the ‘A Mother In Israel’ blog. Hannah Katsman is another one of those ‘Ortho Fems’ so beloved by the anti-Torah groups trying to ‘shatter orthodoxy’ from within.

Back in February 2019, Katsman decided she was going to liberate women by suing Ikea, for putting out a culturally-sensitive catalogue appropriate for strictly ultra-orthodox households.

Screenshot:

====

On my old blog, I wrote a whole post about how Katsman was just being used as the ‘Modern Orthodox’ fig-leaf for the legal suit, which was really being sponsored and paid for by something called the Israel Religious Action Center.

Here’s a screenshot from their About page:

====

Here’s what it says about IRAC on Wikipedia:

The Israel Religious Action Center ….was established in 1987 as the public and legal advocacy arm of the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism. It is located in Jerusalem, Israel.

IRAC aims to defend equality, social justice, and religious pluralism within Israel, through the Israeli legal system, lobbying and publications….Recent campaigns include an effort to ban gender segregation on Israeli public buses, a successful public campaign for the abolition of income guarantees to kollel students, and a lobbying campaign in defense of human rights organizations operating in Israel. 

Anat Hoffman, currently the executive director of IRAC, is also the director and a founding member of Neshot HaKotel, also known as “Women of the Wall”…

====

Does that change the picture, any, now you know that Ikea was actually being sued by the same intolerant, vindictive orthodox Judaism-hating ‘Reform people’ who are behind the Women of the Wall?

Who can apparently tolerate everything and everyone… except Torah-observant Jews and kollel students.

====

So anyway, when I saw Hannah Katsman’s ‘Letter to the Editor’ on the Unorthoboxed website…

I was shocked!!! Shocked!!! That a Reform-funded ‘modern orthodox’ blogger with tight links to Progressive Judaism and the Women of the Wall was the one letter being published in the open-minded, all-inclusive-as-long-as-you-agree-with-me pages of Unorthoboxed…. funded by who, exactly?

I think we are starting to figure that out.

 ====

Me being me, I headed over to Katsman’s website to see if she’d written anything lately about pedophile and child-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s links to a bunch of big names in the Reform movement….

Or anything at all, about that subject.

You’ll be shocked – shocked!!! – to learn that no, predatory pedophiles and wealthy child traffickers at the higher echelons of the ‘pluralistic’ Jewish community didn’t get any airtime at all.

In fact, the blog has slowed down the last two years, and there was just one post on it from the last 24 months, namely this one:

Update about Amanda and Michael Elk/Elkohen/Tzadok

====

In case you forgot, Amanda and Michael Elk were xtian missionaries living in French Hill, who faked being orthodox Jews – and even faked being ‘Kohens!’ – and wreaked havoc amongst the Jewish community.

They were busted when Amanda Elk died of cancer, and her kids were caught ‘missionising’ about Yoshki to classmates in her local Beis Yaakov school.

It turns out, missionary Jew-for-Jesus Amanda Elk and Hannah Katsman were apparently good friends.

It’s a small world…

But even more strange than that, is one of the comments that appeared underneath that article, which I am screenshotting here, as these things have a way of ‘disappearing’ once you start actually paying attention to them.

====

====

So unlike Hannah Katsman, I’m really not convinced that ‘there is no hint of any connection’ between these pretend-Jewish xtian missionaries, and the pedophile scandal within the Jewish community.

And like the commentator above, I also find it very interesting that Michael Elk, the secret xtian missionary, appears to have been at the forefront of trying to get everyone to shut up about the terrible abuse of 200 children by pedophiles in Nachlaot, 10 years ago.

It’s also news to me that:

“Zalman Cohen, the only pervert who is in jail, was also involved in missionary work.”

Say what?!?!

====

And I didn’t know who that ‘Sarah Vorst’ being referred to even was, so I had to look her up.

This screenshot comes from the Tablet Magazine, HERE, from 2012:

====

Is this a good time to remind us all of that story about the 108 kids who were secretly taken out of their Jerusalem kindergartens in the middle of the day?

I wrote the details HERE, but the low-down is that these kids said they were being taken to tunnels under churches by people who were not Jewish, and then drugged and horribly abused, while being filmed.

If that wasn’t bad enough, these kids also said they were forcibly ‘baptised’ in pools of water, forced to eat traif, and had to participate in strange rituals that appeared to be mocking Jewish customs like the shulchan Shabbat.

And the Jerusalem police covered all this up, and did absolutely nothing!!!!

====

So, we have pedophiles connected to tunnels under churches, ‘baptisms’, and strange rituals mocking Judaism – and the police refuse to do anything, and even arrest some of the therapists who raise the alarm.

And then, we have pedophiles connected to xtian missionaries deep undercover in Nachlaot – and nearly every one gets off scot-free, while the police blame the parents for ‘messing up’ the investigation.

And then, we have ‘rebbe’ pedophiles doing awful things in kindergartens while the police initially refuse to do anything, and then the court slaps a gag order on the case to protect the pedophiles identity, when the parents finally force the police to act.

Do you believe in coincidences?

====

Here’s another CO-IN-CID-ENCE, while we’re collecting them.

If you go back to that Tablet Magazine article, referenced above, you read this:

There was no hint of pedophilia in the community before October 2010. But the Haredi community in Nahlaot now believes that the highly organized ring has been operating secretly for years—possibly generations—and is governed by an elaborate hierarchy.

According to community members with whom I’ve spoken over the past year, they believe that a small number of masterminds, including the 70-year-old Vorst, a convert to Judaism who directs Ohel Sarah Imenu, an organization that facilitates Haredi conversions, used formerly abused teenagers and mentally handicapped locals as scouts for the victims. 

Many are convinced that there are Christian missionary motivations at play here and that false converts have infiltrated their community. A number of locals told me they believe that the videos and media produced by the pedophile ring are being sold for tens of thousands of dollars or more.

====

This article is ten years old.

But compare and contrast with what we’ve been learning on this blog about the ‘pretend Jewish / pretend xtian’ Frankists in our midst, and you start to see that a lot of what was being dismissed as pure fantasy and conspiracy theory a decade ago seems to be increasingly borne out by the information we are piecing together about all the satanic Sabbatean-Frankists who have always had very strong links to xtian communities and organisations.

====

Me being me, I went to look up ‘Ohel Sarah Imenu’, to see if I could shed any more light on what is really going on here.

Very quickly, I got to THIS article, on the LukeFord website HERE.

Man, oh man, this story just gets worse and worse.

These sickos seem to be directly connected to the heart of the ‘orthodox’ religious establishment.

None of this would make a lot of sense, if we didn’t know that ‘pretend Jewish / pretend xtian’ Sabbatean-Frankists were running the show in the Jewish world, on all sides of the religious / secular equation.

But once we know that….

We start to understand that we really have our work cut out for us, to start exposing what’s really going on here, and to stand up for our children.

====

Someone asked me this week, what can we really do?

These evil people control the beit dins, the police, the courts, the media, the ‘Tznius patrols’, the schools….

Honestly?

All we can do is continue to build awareness, and to pray to God to finally uproot and destroy this evil from our midst once and for all.

That’s all we can really do.

But that’s enough.

====

You might also like this article:

 

Last week, one of my kids forwarded on another investigation into pedophiles in Jerusalem.

It’s a Channel 13 expose that was run two weeks ago now, about a ‘rebbe’ pedophile who was working in a children’s kindergarten somewhere in Jerusalem, who horrifically abused at least 15 different children, all aged 5-6.

On the kindergarten’s premises.

Under the nose of the gannenet, who apparently didn’t even suspect anything was wrong, when the ‘rebbe’ would disappear for an hour at a time to teach ‘aleph bet’ to a kid who would come back downstairs severely traumatised by what had just occurred.

It’s in Hebrew, but you can watch it here:

====

That’s not even the worst part of this story.

The worst part, is that despite mounting concerns from multiple parents, whose kids started telling them what this ‘rebbe’ was really doing to them, the police didn’t want to investigate the case.

They put the parents off.

They made excuses for why they couldn’t open a case.

Until eventually, the parents had to ‘force’ the police into action by doing their own investigations – based on the testimony of at least 15 kids! – which included finding the not-so-hidden ‘secret room’ upstairs in the kindergarten where the abuse had taken place, and where you could still see things like big pots of vaseline, cushions on the floor, and the pickaxe used to terrify the children into complying.

Sigh.

====

Last week, the police finally had an initial hearing for this ‘rebbe’.

In the meantime, the guy is still walking around totally free, and the court has slapped a gag order on revealing his name.

Some of the parents whose kids were involved in this case were so furious with this decision, they took to Facebook to publically flout the court’s order. (Those posts have now been taken down.)

And that’s how I got to hear about this.

Hmm, curious… 

Why is the State of Israel – that same State of Israel that spent 10 million shekels chasing Rav Berland all over the world on the basis of a sole schizophrenic’s false testimony – trying so hard to:

a) Avoid investigating such serious cases of pedophilia in Jerusalem

And

b) Trying so hard to ‘protect the identity’ of the guilty?

====

In case you haven’t realised it yet, the Frankist-Sabbateans who run our Jewish community are split between the secular and the ‘frum’ world.

Within these same families, you will find hardcore, ultra-secular ‘Zionists’, who control the courts here, and the judiciary, and the police, and the government.

And at one and the same time, you will find ‘anti-Zionist rebbes’ in places like Meah Shearim, who apparently are the polar opposite of their secular brethren.

But really?

They are just one, big, horrible family.

And that family has a family tradition for at least 300 years of practising things like child abuse, incest and sodomy.

And all the members of this big, horrible, Frankist-Sabbatean family just go around covering up for each other, and using each other to further commit their crimes against the Jewish community.

And particularly, our children.

====

Recently, I came across an article from November 2013 that was called:

The Child Rape Assembly Line

It’s an interview with a former Satmar Chassid named Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg, who describes in horrifying detail how he witnessed a small boy being raped by a 70 year old man in a mikva in Meah Shearim – and how the ‘religious’ community totally turned on him, when he started trying to sound the alarm about the horrible child abuse going on in the chassidic community.

A few weeks after he gave the interview above, he was attacked by someone throwing bleach in his face, and had to go to hospital. And the guy receives death threats day in, day out.

You can find his blog HERE, although it looks like it hasn’t been updated since 2019.

====

Tatty, ad matai?

Before I started really researching the Frankist-Sabbateans who have taken over all aspects of our Jewish community, in the leadership and education roles, I would have found this story difficult to believe.

Not any more.

Frankist-Sabbateans are totally immersed in this sort of satanic, deviant behaviour.

And they are continuing to pollute and destroy our innocent children, even in the ‘frummest’ communities, because our Frankist-Sabbatean ‘leaders’ are either complicit in this behavior themselves, or scared of calling it out.

You know who has called it out, repeatedly, and stressed repeatedly the importance of guarding the eyes, and guarding the brit in holiness?

Rav Eliezer Berland.

That’s at least part of why they went after him, to shut him up.

====

The same police who refused, at least initially, to prosecute the case above, and who are still refusing to properly investigate what happened to 108 small chareidi children who were taken out of their kindergartens in the middle of the day, to be drugged and assaulted in awful ways, as detailed HERE 

They have gone after the Rav no less than three separate times, based on totally nothing except fake stories placed in the media by their Frankist-Freemason lackeys in the so-called ‘religious’ community.

What does that tell you, about what is really going on here?

====

People want to know about why I’m pulling all this shmutz out of the corners of the Jewish community.

Why stir it all up again, isn’t it old news?

The answer is this:

These Sabbatean-Frankist child rapists are still operating TODAY, at full tilt, in all of our communities.

They are literally destroying the souls of thousands and thousands of innocent children, while our ‘leaders’ and our ‘rebbes’ and our police and secular judges cover up for them, and run interference against anyone who wants to publicise what is really going on.

You want to know who is really NOT a God-fearing person, whatever their external appearance may be?

Look to see who is trying to cover this stuff up all the time. Look to see who is making excuses for this type of satanic behaviour, or playing down its repercussions.

Look to see who makes a mockery of ideas like guarding the eyes.

(Take a look at THIS, for example, from 2016.)

====

That’s why we have to get to grips with the terrible evil that overtook our Jewish community 350 years ago, and which is still going strong today.

We owe it to our children, to at least try to create a world where these abusers are held to account, and where we parents stand up for the rights of our children to maintain their innocence and purity the way God intended.

====

My kid is in touch with a grass-roots activist here in Israel, who has given her so many examples of where the police, media and ‘religious leaders’ in certain communities are all conspiring together, to make sure that these stories of abuse are all covered up.

What she’s told me the last few months has been totally and utterly sickening.

When it came to someone like Chaim Walder – all our fake leaders were off shooting their mouths off about what he did, and how important it was to talk, talk, talk about it.

At the end of April, another prominent chareidi rabbi was accused of things very similar to Chaim Walder.

I sat here and waited for the torrent of outrage to pour forth from the same people who couldn’t keep their mouths closed for a second about Chaim Walder.

No-one made so much as a peep.

====

So.

The “Sabbatean-Frankists” are real.

They are engaged in sickening acts of pedophilia and incest across our so-called ‘religious’ community (and of course, they are also in the secular world – that’s why the police and judges cover all this stuff up routinely.)

(BTW, I just came across the case of Leiby Kletzky, murdered back in 2011. Again, back then I simply couldn’t fathom that a ‘chassid’ would ever have done something like that, no matter how crazy they were. Now… the Sabbatean-Frankists stuff is explaining a lot of things.)

Personally, I am not going to stop trying to expose what’s going on, because if it helps even just one parent to wake up, and to make sure their child is properly protected from these despicable people, dayenu.

Even a single soul is really a whole world.

***UPDATES***

In fact, it’s been really windy the last 4-5 days, on and off, in a way that feels very meaningful.

These are the winds of change.

Because more and more of us are starting to wake up, and starting to realise that things CANNOT go on the way they have been.

On so many levels.

Following on from THIS post, about how the anti-Torah Frankist-Freemasons are now turning their attention to a full-on ‘trans’ assault within the orthodox Jewish world, continuing their efforts to ‘shatter orthodoxy’ from within, I got sent another email telling me about someone called ‘Yaakov Smith’.

Here’s a little of what it said:

In 1989, I spent a few weeks in the Old City and a lot of time hanging out with residents and Aish families.
One of the most charismatic figures I met was someone named Yaakov Smith, married with six children from toddler to young teenager. They mekaved many.
At a time when Aish’s Discovery seminar was still 4 days long and very intense, he and his wife taught several classes.
Only some months after we met, they got divorced. Later, he came out as homosexual.
Anyway, long story short, today he is known as Yiscah Smith. He’s on the faculty of Pardes.
====

(Warning: it’s another ‘diet aid’ alert!)

Here he is today:

====

Man, how many times is God going to put up with ‘orthodox institutions’ spitting in the face of His Torah?

I don’t just mean individuals who think they know better than God which gender they are meant to be.

I mean the whole ‘open orthodoxy’ / modern orthodox movement as a whole, which really should be more honest, and rename itself:

FRUM REFORM

Because that’s what it really is.

====

Let’s pop the lid on the ‘Pardes Institute of Jewish Learning’, and see what ucky creatures slither out.

First, let me draw your attention to their newly updated ‘S*xual Harassment Prevention’ code, which you can see HERE.

Here’s their working definition of s*xual harassment:

B. Key Definitions and Israeli Law

S*xual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a s*xual nature.

It includes s*xual advances, requests for s*xual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a s*xual nature, when:

o Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly in connection with a person’s ability to participate fully in their education;
o Submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as a basis for academic decisions affecting the individual; or
o Such conduct interferes with an individual’s academic performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or demeaning environment.

S*xual harassment also includes sexual violence, which refers to sexual acts that are against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent.

S*xual harassment can take many forms, physical, psychological, or verbal…

====

Here’s another snippet:

C. The Right to Self-Define Gender

1. Individuals have the right to define their own gender, and should be treated and referred to accordingly.
2. All-gender bathrooms are available on each floor. Additionally, each individual is entitled to define their own gender for the purposes of bathrooms.
3. When participating in the mechitza minyan, individuals can sit on the side that best conforms to their gender identity as they define it.
4. Each minyan has the right to define its criteria for counting towards the minyan. The egalitarian minyan counts anyone who is Jewish according to any major denomination, irrespective of gender identity.

The mechitza minyan counts trans-men who have undergone genital surgery. Every individual is trusted to present themselves faithfully as counting with respect to gender and halakhic status.

People will refrain from asking particular members intrusive questions in order to determine halachic status.

5. On Pardes overnight trips, students will be assigned to share rooms with members of their same gender. In cases where gender identity may cause discomfort for anyone, students may request roommates in a way that is comfortable for all in the room.

====

It seems to me that an orthodox Jew learning at Pardes is being subjected to ‘s*xual harassment’ non-stop by this institution.

Let’s replay the definition:

S*xual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a s*xual nature.

It includes s*xual advances, requests for s*xual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a s*xual nature, when:

o Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly in connection with a person’s ability to participate fully in their education;
o Submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as a basis for academic decisions affecting the individual; or
o Such conduct interferes with an individual’s academic performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or demeaning environment.

====

Woe betide any female student who is uncomfortable using a bathroom together with a man dressed as a woman….

Woe betide any God-fearing Jew who is trying to find out if that ‘guy’ next to him really counts towards a minyan…

Woe betide any man or woman who doesn’t want to spend a night ‘rooming’ with the opposite sex….

Just try complaining about how your right to pray, pee or sleep in a genuinely Torah-observant way is being compromised by Pardes’ rules, and then you’ll quickly see that if you don’t ‘submit’ to Pardes conduct, against your will, you will:

  • find your ‘ability to participate fully’ in your education curtailed;
  • your conduct will be used as a ‘basis for academic decisions affecting’ you – and for sure-
  • you’ll instantly be plunged into a ‘intimidating, hostile and demeaning environment’.

Whaddya mean, you can’t room overnight with ‘Jake’?!?!?!?

Whaddya mean, that Joseph-ine doesn’t count in a minyan?!?!?!?

What sort of barbaric, bigoted, criminal person ARE YOU, exactly?!?!?

====

Sigh.

This is FRUM REFORM in action.

And why you should care, is because this institution is boasting on its website that:

[T]he Pardes Educators Program was created with the assistance of the Avi Chai Foundation and today produces more Jewish day school teachers than any other program.

These brainwashed ‘frum reform’ teachers from Pardes could be the ones teaching your kids in all those ‘dati leumi’ schools….

No wonder so few of my daughter’s ‘dati leumi-educated’ friends still believe in God, or still hold by the morality set out in the Torah.

Sigh again.

====

So, who’s funding the Pardes Institute?

Let’s head over to the History page HERE, to try to figure that out.

Snippet:

Pardes began with the unacknowledged support of the World Zionist Organization, which provided the physical facility and overhead, with salaries coming from student tuition. This arrangement continued until 1987, when the Institute became an independent, self-sustaining entity.

So, right from the beginning the secular, Zionist, Frankist State of Israel was behind this organisation.

Quelle surprise.

Today, the Avi Chai Foundation seems to be giving Pardes a lot of money, especially to train their ‘frum reform’ teachers to indoctrinate your children with anti-Torah tumah.

You can find the ‘Avi Chai Foundation’ website HERE.

The ‘About’ page is full of the usual weasel-words about being committed to the Jewish people and the State of Israel, blahdy blah, but really…. it smacks of yet another ‘Frankist-Freemason’ cut-out, designed to ‘shatter orthodoxy from within’, by subverting the next generation of Jewish teachers.

====

So, what can you and me really do about all this?

Bottom line, for all the ‘fancy words’ and ‘political correctness’, most people are actually moral cowards, sheeple, who will ‘go with the flow’ because they are worried about paying their bills and covering their mortgage.

For as long as ‘the stick’ is only on one side of this equation – i.e. people worry that they will be fired, ostracised, banned from completing their studies at places like Pardes for not following the ‘trans’ propaganda, 99% of them will fall into line.

But, if more of us start to complain to our schools – more of us start to make a fuss, and to really start questioning whether ANY school that considers itself to be genuinely ‘orthodox’ should be accepting FRUM REFORM-indoctrinated teachers from places like Pardes…. then this will start to change.

And when more of us stop playing these people’s Orwellian word games – stop calling them ‘orthodox’, when they really, really aren’t, they aren’t ‘open orthodox’, or ‘modern orthodox’, they are FRUM REFORM – then that will also start to be a big game-changer.

====

Most people don’t question how ‘orthodox’ these institutions really are, when they see the word ‘orthodox’ in their descriptor.

Yeah, it could be ‘open orthodox’, or ‘modern orthodox’ – that’s enough to make us think these people respect the Torah and at least might be truly God-fearing.

That’s why they insist on retaining the ‘orthodox’ bit in their titles.

But once we understand we are dealing with FRUM REFORM…..everything changes.

In an instant, we understand that there are NO ‘orthodox female rabbis’ out there, just FRUM REFORM ‘Rabbas’ and ‘Rabbanits’.

And that no truly God-fearing, orthodox institution is pushing the trans agenda – but tons of FRUM REFORM institutions are doing the bidding of their Frankist-funders, to ‘shatter orthodoxy’ from within.

====

So, get the definitions straight in your head.

And don’t be scared to start pushing back against all these PC ‘Frum-Reformers’ who like to pretend they represent orthodox Judaism.

They don’t.

And for our children’s sake, we need to start telling them that very loudly.

====

PS: When I was browsing the Pardes faculty page HERE, I came across this entry:

The ‘Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance‘ – JOFA – is also very connected to FRUM REFORM’s flagship ‘yeshiva’ for frum reform-smicha of women, YESHIVAT MAHARAT (that we talked about in the last post.)

And Koren books is happily publishing all this FRUM REFORM propaganda, from FRUM REFORM ‘rabbanits’, while still pretending they are an orthodox imprint.

You see how this works?

Ad matai, Tatty?

UPDATE:

I got an interesting email from Chananya Weissman on the topic of  his experience with ‘ortho fems’, much of which I’m sharing below, with permission.

==

Right before covid craziness took over the world, in the very beginning of 2020 was the most recent Daf Yomi siyum.

There was a big buzz in the “Jewish media” about women finishing the cycle in record numbers. All the coverage of this was favorable, naturally, with nary a question about why this was happening, for what reasons, who was behind this trend, and if this was a positive development with no conceivable downside.
I did a little digging and quickly found this was being driven by feminist entities that were on the very fringes of Orthodoxy even if we were to be generous.
I wrote an article exposing this and raising concerns about the women’s Daf Yomi movement, which I posted on my blog at the Slimes of Israel. The Jewish Press published a slightly edited version.
[Ed. note: I probably would…. ortho fems are still probably the most nutso of all the interesting people I’ve crossed swords with here on the blog, not least because they are so self-righteous, hypocritical, arrogant and quick to stoop to dirty tactics to shut you up.]
====

I don’t think I ever wrote something that went so viral, so quickly.

The Times of Israel article was shared thousands of times, far more than anything I ever posted there. There were long threads all over Facebook. The Jewish Press devoted a whole section in the letters to the editor just to responses to this article, after someone urged people to bombard them with angry letters.
Not surprisingly, almost all the reactions were overwhelmingly negative, filled with the usual personal attacks, vulgarity, straw men, emotional reactions, and attempts to cancel me.
Some people contacted me privately and thanked me stating what they were thinking, but the public reaction was a torch-bearing mob.

Most of these seemed to come from “modern Orthodox” women in Beit Shemesh and Efrat, as well as completely irreligious people and even non-Jews, who suddenly were all in favor of Gemara study.

==

One “rabbi” from Efrat wrote a long Facebook post against me, filled with specious arguments and personal attacks, that drew a lot of attention and was also printed in the Jewish Press….

The Slimes of Israel eventually banned me from posting on their blogs after I criticized one of their darlings, Benny Lau. I didn’t even name him, just noted that he was a token rabbi at the feminist Daf Yomi siyum. That was simply too much for the Slimes of Israel, who do not tolerate any less than respectful remarks against any rabbi, of course…
[Ed. note: Benny Lau – and his father, Meir Lau  – descend from the notorious SHOR family I keep mentioning on this blog. Quelle surprise.]
==
I’ve continued to hammer the feminists and their ilk ever since, and encourage everyone to wake up and get in the game.
This garbage is a real threat to the Jewish people, and even people who aren’t personally affected (or don’t think they are) need to speak out and make it clear this trash is not kosher, period.
Here are the links:
====
Ad kan, from R’ Weissman.

Ladies, it’s really up to us to stand up to the ortho fems, because they can’t just smear us with the same ‘sexist’ tactics they generally use with everyone else.

I’m not a man. I’m not a self-hating woman. I’m also very educated, and articulate, and not just chained to my kitchen sink washing dishes and having babies.
And I still think that all this ‘ortho fem’ stuff is totally poisonous, and just out to ‘shatter orthodoxy’ from within.
The Women of the Wall are wielding their Torah scroll, like a battering ram at the Kotel, and all these ‘PC’, abortion-pushing, trans gender embracing ‘rabbas’ are wielding their ‘smicha’ in the classroom and online, to try and batter down our traditions and our children’s morality.

But with God’s help, we will overcome.

You might also like this article:

Over the years, I have lived in many different Jewish communities.

And I’ve also worked as investigative journalist for 25+ years, and that’s brought me into contact with many different people, and their stories.

What I can tell you is that sexual abuse of children is a massive problem today, everywhere.

But I guess I’ve been focussing more on the frum world in this blog, because so many of us want to believe that things like this don’t happen in ‘religious’ communities.

And so we trust perhaps way more than we should, and don’t recognise the warning signs in quite the same way, because  we don’t want to believe that ‘religious’ people, frum Jews, would be capable of acting in these awful, despicable ways.

And of course, so many of the rabbis and leaders in these communities want to keep all the shmutz and yuck covered up, because they are protecting their ‘brand’. And that seems to take precedence over protecting the victim, for people who don’t really fear Hashem, and who are more interested in receiving honor and kavod, than doing the right thing.

====

BUT – as one commentator pointed out, this problem goes way, way beyond the religious community.

In the secular world there are also enormous problems – as you’ll remember from THIS post a few weeks ago, that mentioned the gang rape of a young teenage girl by a pack of feral teenage boys in a Netanya school. That story was totally blanked by the media here, to ‘protect the guilty’.

In the meantime, the poor girl and her father apparently ended up in a mental institution, from the trauma of what had happened – which was compounded by the cover-up.

====

Today, the world is a very sick place.

There is no such thing as a ‘safe’ place, spiritually, today.

(Although I have to say, ironically, that Rav Berland’s community seems to have way, way less issues than any other community I’m aware of. After the last 10 years of slander and scrutiny, Shuvu Banim is pretty much the last place a pedophile would try to hang out in.)

Let me tell you a story that emphasizes this point, and then we’ll move on to tachlis, what we as parents can really do to try to protect our children, to the best of our abilities.

====

A few years back, I lived in a very large, mixed yishuv, that had chardal communities all the way up to dati ‘light’, and was mixed between olim from many different backgrounds, and Israelis.

It all seemed so ‘wonderful’ there, externally, the first two years. Then, I started figuring out that appearances can be very deceptive, that literally half the yishuv was on Prozac (or something similar) – and that sexual abuse and wife-swapping was also occurring there.

I knew a lady whose 9 year old daughter was repeatedly raped by a ‘frum’ cousin – a stellar, solid dati leumi-type older teen.

When that news came out, her world fell apart – and the dati leumi rabbis counselled her not to go to the police about what had happened, because it would ruin the cousin’s life.

In the meantime…. that guy got married, and continued on in the dati leumi community as apparently a paragon of virtue.

While this lady’s kid went totally ‘off’, started smoking, and experienced tremendous tzaar in her soul.

Does this sound right, to you?

====

So now, let’s move into talking tachlis, what can we do, as parents, to try to protect our children?

There is a separate discussion to be had about changing the culture, both in the (Freemason-Frankist….) secular world and in the (Freemason-Frankist….) religious world about not playing down abuse like this any more, and not trying to just keep covering it up.

We’ll leave that for now, although you can be sure that is something that I will come back to in future posts, BH.

Today, I want to focus on what we can do as parents, with God’s help.

====

When I was looking into this more, I tripped over the ‘BrightBeginnings’ website, of R’ Yakov Horowitz.

You can find that website HERE.

He’s written a book about how to keep children safe, and he’s also put out this 10 minute video, that covers some very useful information on how to deal with this issue, tachlis:

====

Here’s a screenshot of the 4 main messages R’ Horowitz says parents have to give over to their kids – in as calm a way as possible, because when the parent is agitated, the kid won’t remember what they are saying:

====

Watch the video above, to really understand how to put these messages across to your children.

He packs a lot of good information into 10 minutes, and he’s also got books in both Hebrew and English called ‘Let’s stay Safe!’, that you can get HERE.

Here’s a precis:

  1. Teach your child that NO-ONE should ever tell them to keep a secret from you, their parents. This is a massive red flag for predatory behavior.
  2. Give your child a sense of having firm boundaries – that their body, their personal ‘space’, belongs to them, and they get to decide who can enter it, and when.
  3. Explain to them the ‘bathing suit’ rule, that no-one else should touch them in places covered by their bathing suit – except for very specific people, in very specific instances (i.e. the parents or main caregivers, when they need to clean them up or care for them in some way – but keep these parameters as tightly-defined as possible.)
  4. Teach your children to trust their own instincts – and to get away from people who make them feel uncomfortable, AS SOON AS they start to feel uncomfortable, even if nothing ‘bad’ has happened.

====

This is great advice.

But if we’re honest, as parents, we already know that WE have to do a lot of work on our own bad middot and issues, to really put this advice into practise.

What do I mean?

Well, from my own experience of being a sincere baal teshuva, I know I put so much pressure on my kids to ‘conform’ to a certain very high religious standard, that for a couple of years meant that they simply stopped telling me what they were really up to, because they knew I wouldn’t approve.

And when a kid feels that they can’t tell their parent everything, that’s when the kid enters the ‘danger zone’.

I had to do a lot of work on my own bad middot, including my own anger, disappointment and unrealistic expectations, before I could really create a ‘space’ where my kids felt it was safe to tell me about their struggles again, without me going ballistic at them for not being ‘perfect.’

====

Another problem is peer pressure.

It’s hard to encourage our kids to call out predatory, bullying behavior when it might cost us, the parents, socially.

For example, a few years ago I had a really good friend, who outside her home was amazing and wonderful – but whose house was full of dysfunction and problems, from the perspective of the children.

Long story short, her kids were routinely bullying and beating up my kids, and it took me two years to really stop making excuses and to tackle the problem, because I knew tackling the problem was going to cost me my own friendship.

And it did.

But in these myriad small ways, we can send our kids messages that they shouldn’t ‘rock our boat’ – and predators, especially predators who are ‘close to home’, can take advantage of this very human tendency, God forbid.

====

And perhaps R’ Horowitz’s last ‘message’ can be the most difficult one of all, for a parent to really convey to their children.

Because if I’m a forceful parent, I’m a super-frum, or super-idealistic parent, who has all sorts of ideas of how my kid should be acting, and dressing, and what sort of super-healthy food they should be eating, and who they should be hanging around with….

….And I don’t really give my kid the ability to develop their own instincts about what is right for them, let alone to trust them….

That gives predators a huge ‘in’.

And we parents can do that, without even realising what a disadvantage we are actually giving our children, because we WANT THEM to listen to us, and to obey us, and to not challenge us all the time with their own opinions and ideas.

Can you see the problem?

====

The solution again comes down to us parents working on our own bad middot.

It again comes down to challenging our own assumptions about what is really ‘right and wrong’; and being prepared to take a cold, hard look at where we ourselves trample on our children’s ability to honestly feel what they feel, and to honestly express what they feel – without being harshly judged and punished for it.

It’s so easy to write these words, but it can be so, so hard to live up to them.

Especially when we ourselves often came from homes where kids were meant to be ‘seen but not heard’, and where the parents were meant to be held high up on a pedestal by the child, and never questioned or crossed.

====

It’s sadly true, that when a kid is bullied, and / or ignored, and / or harshly judged at home, by their parents, that will make them way more ‘at risk’ of attracting predators.

Spiritually-warped people have a kind of ‘sixth sense’, where they can sense which kids don’t have a ‘back’ – don’t have a parent on their side, really supporting and listening to them.

====

One more thought, then we’ll talk more about bringing God into the equation.

Like most mothers, I have always loved my kids a lot. But until my oldest was 5, I was trying to hold down a very demanding career, that meant I had pretty much zero time or headspace to really ‘be’ with my kids, after work.

I was usually so exhausted from the day job, all I wanted was for them to disappear to bed, as soon as possible, when I got home.

It was only after we moved to Israel, that Hashem really started giving me the present of understanding just how toxic my career was, for my family (and also, for myself!)

When my oldest was six, that’s when I made the excrutiatingly difficult decision to quit my high-paying job – and to become a stay-at-home mum.

====

On some level, I just knew that I couldn’t do both.

And with the benefit of 15 years’ hindsight, I can now honestly say it was the best decision I ever made, for my family and for myself – even though I can’t overestimate how hard it was to do, personally.

I feel now that so many of my kids’ issues with being bullied etc, mostly stem from that time that I was neglecting them emotionally, when they were younger. And that it took me a good 4-5 years of constant work on my own bad middot, via talking to God regularly for an hour every day, to start redressing the balance, and to start resolving the problems.

Thank God, my kids are great.

But we still live in a sick world, and we’ve all still got so many challenges to deal with, on so many levels.

I dread to think, how bad things would be if I hadn’t made the decision to put my kids’ need to have a ‘present’ mother ahead of my own need to do a job I really enjoyed, and that made me a ton of cash.

====

So now, let’s put God firmly in this equation.

As mentioned, the key to so much of this is to know that we need God’s help to really protect our kids – both from ‘stranger dangers’, and also from our own bad middot that can render them vulnerable to predators, God forbid.

I cannot overemphasise the importance of getting into the habit of talking to God regularly, every day, to make a strong spiritual ‘connection’, and overcome our own programming to ignore what we really think and feel about bad people and situations.

If we can’t be ‘real’ with ourselves, if we also have unhealthy boundary issues, if also push down things that make us uncomfortable to avoid ‘rocking the boat’ – then so will our kids, however much we try to educate them differently.

So, the first thing is to get into the habit of asking God to help us, ourselves, uproot all these negative habits and bad middot.

====

Then of course, we ask God – all the frigging time! – to protect our kids from the ‘bad’ out there.

If you have trouble formulating these prayers by yourself – and many people do – then Rav Berland has a whole bunch of booklets, that are filled with very powerful prayers that really make a difference.

If you go HERE, you’ll find a bunch to pick from.

Here’s one I recommend, Prayers for Holy Children:

 

====

 

If you don’t speak Hebrew, just try to do one a day – it’s the effort that counts, not the quantity.

Alternatively, you can get that book in English translation – and get the hard copy FOR FREE, from the RavBerland.com site, you just pay for the postage, HERE.

====

With God’s help, our children will be protected from all the ‘bad’ in the world.

And we will uproot all the ‘bad’ within ourselves, as their parents, that can make them more vulnerable to predators, God forbid.

And BH, Moshiach will come soon, and finally all this tremendous evil will be banished from the Jewish communities, and the wider world, for good.

====

UPDATE:

I had a couple of comments telling me that R Horowitz is anti Rav Berland, and pro ‘vaccinating’.

All I can say, is that this is all part of the birur  process, and I guess part of that process of moving away from the unrealistic black and white world where we are pushed to an ‘extreme’ of having to agree with everything a person says, 100%, before being willing to quote them in other areas, and moving towards a more nuanced approach.

I feel R Horowitz advice in this area is useful, so I’m quoting it.

Clearly, I feel he’s totally wrong about Rav Berland, and Covid 19 shots.

Hope that clears up the confusion.
