Why This Blog Is Necessary

וחכמות סופרים תסרח ויראי חטא ימאסו והאמת תהא נעדרת

“In the times of the approach of the messiah…the wisdom of scribes will putrefy, and people who fear sin will be held in disgust, and the truth will be absent.” (Talmud Bavli, Sotah 49b)

In recent times, these fearful predictions of the Talmud have become true. Religious Jewish communities have suffered the full impact of the influence of the non-Jewish divorce cultures, including family disintegration, militant feminism, gender wars, and destruction of fatherhood that have become rampant in the non-Jewish world. These disasters are occurring while rabbinic leadership has largely been missing, or is even enabling these disasters in some cases.

For too long now, the Jewish media and rabbinical leadership have been failing to honestly and openly address the the family crisis situations occurring in Jewish communities. Too much of the information being reported has been tainted with strong leftist, feminist, and/or anti-male biases.

This blog is an attempt to provide pro-family, pro-father, fair and balanced, Torah based articles and commentary on Jewish marriage, divorce and family issues.

Basic Principles of this Blog:

1. Men and women are equal in value but fundamentally different from each other in various ways.

2. Torah based marriage may involve only one man and one woman.

3. Torah law considers sexual relations between persons of the same gender,  whether committed by men or women, as a severe prohibition and depravity.

4. Attempts at gender “change” are prohibited by Torah and are scientifically impossible.

5. Arbitrary divorce on demand, whether initiated by husband or wife, is prohibited by Torah law.

6. Malicious Get refusal, by husband or wife, is a violation of Torah law.

7. Children belong to both parents and parental alienation is a heinous evil and injustice.

 

“But let him that boasts exult in this, that he understands and knows me, for I am the Lord Who practices chesed (kindness), mishpat (just law), and tsedaka (charity) on the Earth, for in these things I delight, says the Lord.” (Jeremiah 9:23)

“And what does Hashem require of you: only to do mishpat, to love chesed …” (Micha 6:8)

“And they shall judge the people with mishpat tsedek (just judgment).” (Devarim 16:18)
