Okay so whats so surprising about that? I guess it’s not THAT questionable. I think I assumed that because my husband’s brother is a Rosh Yeshivah, and that because my husband dresses like, and views himself as a “Ben Torah”, they would not lie.
How wrong was I.
The entire family of Choshuvah Rabbonim are willing to stand by and watch while their brother lies openly for all to see.
The silence from his family and even his boss who is a well-known principal of a local yeshivah is deafening.
They are witness to the deliberate systematic destruction of a woman and her children, by a man who is not only “frum” but is a teacher of Frumkeit.
I feel shock as I watch my own drama unfold before my eyes.
And not one person has the courage to step forth and say this is wrong, this is not Yashrus, this is not what our Torah teaches.
I feel betrayed by the Rabbis, and by the community at large.
I have been frum my whole life and I have been hurt many times by frum people.
So many questions swirl around in my brain.
There is so much confusion about yiddishkeit, and how it fits into my existence. I have never pondered these questions before now. I have blindly followed the path my parents offered to me. But now after suffering at the hands of those who represent this faith, I am left with mistrust and a huge amount of misunderstanding.
I truly wish I had answers to my questions.
I wish I could go back to my once blind faith.
