She trying to get into the 'model world' and this is great free PR and get her 15 minutes of fame. Very unfortunate for the children though. The choice is hers but it's hard to watch people use parenthood for their personal benefit.

She's just a copy cat of deborah feldman


It doesn't seem like exactly the same thing.  And while yes she may be trying to use the media to her benefit for one way or another it still seems she has more valid points.

She should lose her kids for wearing pants in public? I would say she does have a valid point.

I agree she has valid points and I don't judge her decision to get custody of her children. I disagree with her decision to do it on such a public display. I don't see any gain in going on national TV with her story. It not beneficial for her children and it definitly won't help her in court either.

No we are not that crazy in Lakewood. She is only saying half of the story. She is losing her kids because she has men coming in and out of her house. And because she has served her kids non kosher. Guys this is the U.S. justice system she is talking about that's taking away her kids not bais din. And they are doing so based on report by a psychologist that she and her lawyers agreed she go to.

Unless you know the FULL story and ALL the details perhaps it would be a good idea to keep all the comments to yourself.

All I can say is that My wife was cringing watching this. As he still has all the accents of a Bais Yaakov teacher.
It's basically two sides of the story. But where did she move to? Is there a Shul nearby? How can they be brought up orthodox of they can't walk to Shul on shabbos.

Can she honestly claim that the entire lakewood and boro park is married off with no say in the matter...what a blatant lies.  And that if you get divorced you automatically lose your kids? Huh?

Things might be based on the truth but seem grossly exaggerated.
Yes many times leaving your whole religion results in losing custody. And yes many girls are pressured into getting married.  Even in the Yeshivish world girls are pressured to get married young.
But everything is blown out of proportion with this girl.  And while many people do live in this extreme life the numbers are low compared to those who don't.

Leaving your religion may cause a loss of custody, but getting a divorce doesn't.
And being pressured to marry young doesn't mean that the marriage is arranged and that you have no choice in your mate, that's not an exaggeration, it's a lie IMHO.

Right.  I hear. Arranged marriages would be more just certain types of Chassidus. Everything is way too generalized.

Its just sad that all if this girls personal issues are so publicly broadcast now.


Anyways ... BH for us its about to Shabbos. May it be a peaceful one for all you fellow DDFers.

After watching the clips this IMHO is a girl that has been hurt and now is lashing out with anger. I am liking this Rabbi more every time I see him speak. I bet he is ruffling a lot of feathers in the Jewish community.
