The more I'm hearing, the more I'm starting to agree with your view. My trust level in my fellow Chareidy brethren has plummeted to near 0. Add the recent London Dayan story, whom 2 of his kids are great friends of mine, and I can't even trust Rabbi's.


You believe the rumors are true? Maybe he resigned for other reasons.

Dunno. I have 4 citizenship's, and non-American ;)

Now everything makes sense 😂

From a few minutes with Google.  He suddenly resigned from the bais din and from his shul position.  It appears his problem is not financial or with young boys.

Let's not compare anyone or anything to Dovid hamelech.. not sure what you mean by great tanaim having "personal failures" either  כל האומר... חטא אינו אלא טועה

The תלמיד of רבי מאיר who went to מדינת הים and wasnít embarrassed to give his name after starting the aveira and then overcoming his יצר הרע.

רבי חייא בר אשי in Meseches kiddushin whoís wife pretended to be the local זונה and he went to great lengths to consort with her.

ברוריא the wife of רבי מאיר who was a great woman in her own right, and many, many others.

Getting off topic here but yeah we all have challenges. My older brother is a very respected Rav and my father always says / said that I have higher potential. But I'm just not a saint.

Did I waste my life in that aspect? I'm not sure.. thought I heard stories of various Jewish leaders who overcame many challenges etc..

I'd actually understand and respect a  Jewish leader who comes clean and said "chatasi" the evil inclination got the better of me and I sinned.

Him I would I respect.

The greater the man, the greater the evil inclination works.

The story of Yehuda and Tamar is a constant reminder and from them came David.

And let's not be foolish, Ruth and Boaz was hardly your chareidi coupling.. even I wouldn't sleep with some random woman by my bed!

But side issue is where these rabbi's treated underage molestation as just a taiva.

Anyways, so far off topic.

This is the danger of how you overinvested in what great people they supposedly were.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

It touches on the problem we have nowadays in how we teach kids about gedolim, we build up these people into what basically amounts to malachim. I get why we have the gedolim stories the way we do but you have to be cognizant of what comes along with that.

Here's not the place, correct. Just take this for example if you think it's so simple what happened you're wrong.
