TODAY'S HOT POTATO: Taken from article: Modesty Blasé: Much to learn from frum women Talkback #: 6 Talkbacker: Jason Text: I too have grown up & continue to live within an Orthodox community, and I too find it far too insular and self-congratulating. While there are certainly aspects of Orthodox life that we may be proud of, we should certainly not be oblivious to the serious issues confronting our community. It is incumbent upon us all to ask ourselves why the Orthodox community is poorer than the balance of the Jewish community, why is there such a desperate need for tzedakah in the frum community & why do we continue to support the establishment of more kollelim and yeshivot despite this What do you think?
