Quote of the Day

"....the problem is, Orthodoxy doesn't learn from its mistakes. Judaism of the Napoleanic era suffered such losses of observant Jews because the derech of the time was self-directed and not geared to address the "grievances" of those who strayed. At a time when the attraction to stray is so strong, a relevant position must be presented to counter the argument.

Rav Samson Raphael Hirsch demonstrated this concept, very successfully. In fact, the Agudah is principled, or at least was, on the worldview of RSRH.

The mistake Orthodoxy is making, once again, is to assume that doing nothing is doing something. . . .

When someone taps Orthodoxy on its shoulder and says, "Hi, I'm Joe Blog and I think your tires are a bit low," the Orthodox mainstream goes [ballistic] and refuses to acknowledge that anything is wrong. "It's the bloggers' fault!"

To cover their tracks, they're dedicating an entire forum to bash Jeremiah! "

From a blogger who shall remain anonymous - edited and not necessarily expressed in the respectful manner the management here prefers, but nevertheless making a point to be considered.
