An opinion piece

The Jewish blogs are burning the bytes with reports and opinions about Rabbi BenTzion Twerski's resignation from Dov Hikind's task force to investigate the abuse problems in Yeshivot, shuls, camps, etc.

For links to the various articles and for other blogger opinions, follow these links when you have a spare hour or so:

Wolfish Musings
Rabbi Horowitz, Part I
Rabbi Horowitz, Part II
Life of Rubin
Gil Student
Zach Kessin
Hershel Tzig
Back of the Hill
Failed Messiah
Rabbi Harry Maryles

In my opinion, Hikind went about this the wrong way. See, he didn't use any of the popular key words that seems to get much of the Jewish community up in arms and demanding action.

He didn't use the word 'crisis'. He didn't use the word 'tznius'.

See, if Mr. Hikind had said 'we're setting up a task force to deal with the tznius crisis in our schools, camps and shuls', he would have had Jerusalem and Lakewood and Monsey plastered with Kol Korehs supporting his valiant effort.
