Nice story, but I'm glad they didn't keep the headline from the url

I didn't read the story (yet?), but since I read this quote, every so often it cracks me up

The rabbi expected to be on the receiving end of torrential hate from the Haredi community after so passionately calling them out in the Israeli paper of record. Instead, he got crickets.”

How does this work? Who is the Democratic party? If I'm registered as a Republican can I vote for him?

Only registered D can vote in the D primary. Anyone can vote for the D nominee in the general election.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

back to AD/KD...
pretty obvious from the article they didnt speak to anyone who know him from lakewood at all
basically all their info was from that west side shul bulletin
as far asi can tell, everything being said about his high status in lkwd is highly exagerated.
Positive he wasnt a "practicing rabbi", and even the oft repeated claim that he was a Rosh Kollel, i have yet to find anyone that knows anything about this supposed kollel.
Has anyone heard of it beyond of through this story?

A source within the Orthodox community told me about something of a pattern among some of its most ardent religious scholars who devote their lives to study and need ways to blow off steam. A very small percentage—maybe 1 percent this source estimated—go on tropical vacations alone, or jaunts through Europe, or might even take a few forays into Manhattan nightlife.
i guarantee you this guy Henry whoever he is doesnt even know of one other person.
Its just something he made up off the top of his head to impress the VF writer.

"the most ardent religous scholars" in BMG, dont look anything like kyle. the vast majority of them have flip phones.

Well, my narcissist friend Roman used to say "religious Jews are hypocrites, I once saw a hasidic guy in a strip club"

Roman is Jewish, I met him in Israel 20 years ago.

Maybe we believe the stories because we have all seen it or heard of them ?
So all religious jews are hypocrites because this guy once saw one hassidic guy in a strip club.

Idiot!

I think at one point he was an assistant Rabbi in Sons of Israel

No, they are hypocrites for talking in shul. That's worse than going to a strip club

Fwiw I've never been to a strip club.
