Current Events

I am going to interrupt the chronological order of my postings to underscore the HIGHLIGHTS of current day events in the orthodox world.

1-Jew against Jew on the appropriate way of performing bris milah.

2-Jew against Jew on reconciling Science & Torah.

3-Jew against Jew on the shechita issue.

4-Jew against Jew on what constitutes orthodoxy;-kippah srugah or Borsalino(black only-4 inch brim)

5-Kashrus agency against kashrus agency on the" important" issue of handsoap requiring pesach certification or not.

6-How many rabbis needed to authenticate the origin of hair for sheitels?(I will give you a hint-must be more than five.)

7-What constitutes sexual harassment for rabbis?Is there a different standard for laymen?

8-How many kashrus agencies should certify a kosher slaughtering house before we are allowed to eat their chickens?

9-What IF a rabbi who is affilliated with a particular slaughtering house permits Indian hair in sheitels,should that nullify his trusworthiness as a Rav Umachshir?

10-What if this same rabbi forbids the use of a tube to do the metziza by a bris;does that increase his" right wing" status and now cancels out his psak that permits Indian hair in sheitels-enabling us Orthodox Jews to rely on his hechsherim?

11-What if this same rabbi has praised a book that has been banned by the REAL right wing-do we let him continue to be a rosh yeshivah?

12-If a rabbi gives a lecture at Yeshiva University,do we take away his black homburg and force him to change his family name?

13-What if we discover that a rabbi's claim to fame is being a "Jewish historian";only to find out that HIS history does not really mean that it is FACTUAL?

I'm getting a headache,stay tuned.......

It seems to me that you should name these criminals. If only to alert people from donating money to their instituitions. I had no idea to the level of depravity you describe.

Dear Al,
The above facts have been published and the charlatans are all known.
I am trying to have our fellow Jews
see the depravity as an illness pervading our people and get angry enough to do something about it.

The 'Yeshivish' black hats and the Chassidim have a propensity to hide their corruption behind the smoke-screen of 'Mirror Mirror on the wall- who is the Frumest one of all?' Their 'Shokeling' must be an attempt to shake off the Avairos they have committed Bain Adam LaChavairo. Aich Noflu Giborim- Oh, how the mighty have fallen! More later.
