I have been wondering about a particular point I have seen made online over the last day.
Most people in the frum world, including Matzav readers, heard about two frum guys who got onto a show called America’s Got Talent. Everyone was ecstatic with their Jewish pride as two guys with white shirts and tzitzis hanging out – and I give them credit for the way they were dressed – performed. They are apparently very talented beat-boxers, though I don’t even know what that means.
The two frum contestants won over the crowd and even got yeses from the four judges to move on to the next round.
Okay, so this is all fun, and great conversation. And we’re all proud, pounding our chests about how great it is that these guys are representing us so nicely. But is this where we’re at in our frum world? Is this where we should be holding?
I am not here to criticize, but more to ask for a gut check. How much farther are we going to go? Is entertainment just entertainment? Have we just embraced secular culture and just thrown in the towel?
Have we become way too comfortable with the culture that surrounds us?
Matzav readers, let me know what you feel.
