Business Opportunity for Haredim


Writing in blogs, this seems to be almost the only haredi publication besides newspapers. I just read an article about ebooks although I am not into this kind of "literature" at all. However, the article listed all kinds of authors and most of them were Gentiles. It just popped into my mind why almost no Haredi writes a book. It doesn't matter if it is a novel, thriller or something religious. You hardly hear about haredi literature.

The reason may be that Haredim don't have time writing books but, on the other hand, other people face the same problem but sit down late in the evening and start writing. Page by page and chapter by chapter.

I am still waiting for the first haredi Steven King in a frum mystical sense. If there was someone like that he would definitely make money.


  1. There was a woman from the Breuer's Yekke dynasty that put out a great book about ten years ago that is part fantasy. Much of the dialogue is by Rabbi Breuer, and the part that really got me was when after berating his son for going off the derech a bit, and reading more secular material than religious, he slips. His son says he likes Goethe, Kant, and Schiller, and Rabbi Breuer turns to him and says, "but did you ever read them in the original German??? Ahhh. Nothing like it." It's very entertaining.

    I am still waiting for the first haredi "Miss Marple" investigating in haredi society.:-)))
