Chabad of North West Bergen County, Franklin Lakes, Orthodox
The Jewish Standard recently focused its readers’ attention on the odd story of a former chasid’s rejection of his roots, and the abandonment of his wife and child as he moved cross-country. Was it so important that we be apprised of this isolated phenomenon? Ignored in the article is the overwhelming contentedness and fidelity of this man’s peers with their Jewish lifestyle of choice. You would do a greater service by reporting on the thousands of Bergen County residents who have given up a secular lifestyle in favor of a life committed to Torah.
