The Matzav Shmoooze: Credit Where It Is Due


matzav_network-smallDear Editor,

With the recent attention paid to the planned trip of admorim from Eretz Yisroel and the asifa that was to take place in the United States, stories abounded all over the internet, particularly on frum websites, covering this story.

I was deeply disturbed by the freedom with which people mocked gedolim, fellow Yidden, and anyone and anything, and even more disturbed that purportedly “frum” websites continually to allow the bashing of Torah leaders and those groups whom they may not like, for whatever reason. The patronage of such sites by frum people, businesses and organizations leaves me dumbfounded.

I am taking the time to write to you because your site has distinguished itself for monitoring what is reported and what comments are published. You deserve credit for doing the right thing.

Sincerely yours,

David Kitay

  1. OK, but bottom line, what are we doing about the crisis in Eretz Yisrael?
    Our religious brothers are desperate for help! For food, for housing, for clothing…
    I feel that we have woken up too late, and maybe we are still sleeping!
