“Taking care of the victims” (May 2) is a column that had to be written. Its intent is spot-on. I would comment that so-called Orthodox Jews, no matter who they are, are not Orthodox when they veer off the Torah path. It is a terrible shame that one of the sisters is disassociating herself from the community, based on her horrific experiences, rather than based on what the Torah says about how we should live. I understand why someone would judge a Torah way of life by those who claim to lead such a life, but this is frequently not the case.
That’s why we are taught to choose our spiritual guides and friends very carefully.
