Appreciates Abuse Coverage

Appreciates Abuse Coverage

As a survivor [of abuse] and one who has walked away from Orthodoxy due to the pedophilia issues and the refusal of the rabbonim [rabbis] to deal with said issues, I cannot thank you enough for your continued coverage and support (“Abuse Case Tests Ohel’s Adherence To Reporting Laws,” Feb. 25).

I wish I were able to live, pray, and act as an advocate within the community. I cannot stand to walk into a synagogue, let alone daven with tallis and tefillin.

I can only hope and pray that your efforts will force the rabbonim to change their ways, to make our communities safe for children everywhere.
