I closed down Ad-Kan temporarily because it had become too time consuming, but the larger reason was because I felt that I could not continue without SOME feedback.
Although I have the ability to check how many people view adkan every day – (about 600 on average, and some days the number rises to over 1,000), I do not know who you are, or what you are thinking.
I had begun to feel that my efforts to be of service to the community with the wall of shame, and then sharing my story – which is not always easy- were not worth it.
I know people are reading, and I had a couple of people email me to tell me that upon looking at the pictures in the wall of shame, they have become aware that a molester lives either next door or in their neighborhood.
But for the most part, I would be so grateful to know who you are, from which part of the world you are from, how you found Ad-Kan and what you think about it.
What changes do you think I can make, what can I add?
But mostly I wish I knew why you visit my blog; Is it because you are a survivor yourself or do you know someone who is? Perhaps you are a therapist, or a Rabbi? Maybe you are an abuser and by reading my blog you have come to understand the devastation you have caused.

No one will ever know who you are, as long as you don’t put in any personal information.
I returned to my blog mostly because a few comments started coming in, and also because a journalist from the Washington Post interviewed me, and I felt that her story was too important to miss.
People in our communities need to know what is happening. There will be further articles coming out in different newspapers. I do not view it as a Chilul Hashem, it is rather a way of saving lives. If the Rabbonim would step up to the plate and stop protecting the abusers, there would be no need to go to the secular media. Alas they will not and as a result they force us- the people to take matters into our own hands. How can we not? There are Jewish souls being hurt as we speak. Ezriel Tauber (I’m sorry I cannot refer to him as a Rabbi) is still counseling unsuspecting women whom he ends up molesting. Rabbi Dovid Cohen is well aware of Tauber’s antics, yet chooses to do nothing.
Read my blog, and you will get a feel of what happens inside a soul when it’s body is taken advantage of in such a terrible way.
Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon.
