Yechiel Levy, the director of the Kiryat Hayovel community center, went to sleep one night last week after what seemed to him like just another ordinary day and woke up the following morning to find out he had become an antisemite, full of hatred toward his fellows haredi residents, whom he planned to choke one by one.

As he struggled to understand how this transformation occurred, he heard himself slandered all over the media – ending the dreadful day with a letter of dismissal by the community centers group that was his direct employer.
