Shabbat Shalom

Too many scandals have been taking place lately. Dudi (David) Zilberschlag and his Chesed organization "Me'ir Panim" are actively involved in accepting donations from Christian missionaries. Also yesterday, it was announced that the national religious Rabbi Motti Elon has to go to court. A year ago, his homosexuality became public. Moreover, Elon took sexual advantage of some of his male students. Now he has to appear in court, as their are claims that the Rabbi raped minors. Honestly, I don't understand parts of the national religious movement pretending for the past year that nothing has happened. Most of Elon's students embraced and support him whereas the victims of his abuse are outcasted. 

Despite all negative affairs, I am planning to enjoy the Shabbat and concentrate on the positive such as going to the Synagogue. 

"Shabbat Shalom - Gut Schabbes" to all of you !
