  • When we think Jewish we don’t think of the woman whose husband takes her outside of the Jewish community, and suddenly she is stripped of the Jewish law to defend herself. This is a story that needs to be covered, how abusive partners use the US court systems and suddenly all your required traditions, mitzvahs are thrown out the door.

    I am really confused how can g-d fearing people be ruled by those without faith. Thoughts? help?
