The Matzav Shmoooze: What Do You Bring Into Your Home? December 20, 2012 6:02 pm
Let me begin by making clear that I believe in protecting children. Those who hurt or abuse children should be removed from our society. Period.
But I also believe in protecting the sanctity of my family and in protecting my home. Which is why some things need not be brought into my home – such as conversations with lawyers, experts or really anyone else sharing their opinions and analysis of court cases and legal action involving those who abuse or are alleged to have abused children.
When supposed family publications, which people bring into their homes and are picked up by children of all ages, have no limits regarding what they will report or discuss, we have in essence removed any semblance of holiness or purity in our homes. The spiritual havoc this could render on our homes is inestimable.
Fellow Yidden, be wise about what you bring into your home. We are no longer able to rely on the wisdom of others, especially when their bottom line, and issues sold, seems to be all that matters.
