Rivka Schlesinger ,   efrat   (08.09.19)
So many of our friends and family including ourselves have a son or daughter who have chosen a different path......kol hakavod to this man!
3. The very notion of neglecting a child because he leaves your
Al   (08.09.19)
Beliefs and chooses another is insanity.

The haredi are truly insane.

Even murderers have mothers and fathers who love them. They may not agree with their actions but they still love them.

There once was a fragrant young lady,
Who'd had enough of being Haredi
She lost all tikve after immersing in the mikve
her behaviour became decidedly shady.
6. Love is the strongest bond

7. Great approach by the rabbi. Love conquers, hate kills.
Michael ,   California, USA   (08.09.19)
Haredim who hate changes, who hate and fail to accept departures from their old impractical beliefs, are staying small and isolated. These are the Haredim who are today overwhelmed by the "hozrim b'sheela." In contrast, look at the Kipot Srugot in Israel and outside, look at the majority of American Jews, most of them don't want to have anything to do with the Haredim. Look at the Christians who understood loving ways more than 2,000 years ago and are leading in numbers in the world today in consequence of their departure from Judaism.

A ray of light in a darkening world.
9. Rabbi Kornfeld is a kind man in the best Jewish tradition

10. Beautiful Father & Son
Tova   (08.11.19)
This is a son who has great respect for his father. And a father who understands the path that a child chooses is the free will that GOD has given to everyone. The Haredim sadly have hearts of stone. And for those who choose to enlist in the IDF are doing what GOD has commanded. Moses himself taught men to fight for Moses knew was instructed by GOD the Land of Israel would not come easy to them. Joshua himself was both Rabbi and General and with GOD's instructions the walls of Jericho came tumbling down. Today the Haredim are moving away from GOD when they should be moving towards GOD.
