You all make it sound like this kid is some yeshiva bochur from lakewood. He's not! He most probably goes to a co-ed school, has a girlfriend, and kids tell each other dirty jokes in class. Don't make such a big deal over a few silly jokes. (as if when we were kids there were no kids telling dirty jokes, please!)
Yet it was so over the top that the only reason  the judges voted him through was because of how vulgar his jokes were. He definitely didn't get through on his (lack thereof) comedic skills.

Huh? Did I understand you correctly? You think the torahs way of "chinuch" is outdated?
I assume he was referring to the horrific application of hashkafa hatorah

And we wonder why there are so many people going off the derech.
When 2 people are having a discussion/argument, and one of them says "And we wonder why there are so many people going off the derech" - to me that's a signal that all intelligent dialogue will end from there on.


But honestly, you're blaming children going OTD,  on an attitude that a Shul should throw out a family that made a "Ve'idas Znus" in front of millions of people, and were Mechalel shem shomayim befarhesia?

Throwing out a family from a Shul for having zero standards and publicly behaving immorally is a "horrific application of Hashkafas HaTorah"? I would say no.

But it is a horrific application of Torah Umada - that I agree.

I agree. Excuse the comment. I was just venting.


Nothing is ever black and white. The truth is none of us can give any opinion until we know the facts. Who the family is, where they go to shul and what their connection with Gd and religion is.
Throwing someone out isn't necessarily helpful to him or the congregation.

@boruch, He has already been embraced by many modern orthodox bloggers/ rabbis as a hero and a mekadesh Shem shomyim!

Don't you realize, finally we are cool and part of the modern world, this is going to end anti Semitism!

Trust me, nobody's is throwing him out of shul

I am happy I am not hype principal of his school!
My bet is the best thing he could do is to just ignore it.
Lucky for him it aired now after school is over.

Good point. All the others who want him thrown out off shul, I'm curious as to how you got the jokes.

His father attempted stand up comedy a few years back and used the same joke almost word for word. There's video footage floating around.
Clearly plenty of this dirty humor is coming from the home.
The only word that comes to mind here is "nebach."

I know someone who looked into a rabbinical position somewhere out of town and found out that there was a family in the frum school that the mother works for the adult entertainment industry, and not as an executive. On the one hand it is a nebach, but in the other hand at least they send their kids to the frum school.   אפילו ריקנים שבכם מלאים מצוות כרימון. We don't know what is doing with the family etc.

That's why I said nebach and not sick or disgusting. It's sad the kid was raised this way and believes it's normal to think like that.
I think the fact that a twelve year old kid is telling these jokes is a lot sadder than the fact that it's a Jewish kid doing so.

i agree but if he was not Jewish this thread would be a few posts long at best.

What the hell is that supposed to mean?
He's not from your corner of Lakewood or boro park so you trash the whole community.
