Postscript to a Postscript
If you have to spend time on one presentation about the topic, this one is my recommendation. If you want the juicy inside story about the Lakewood scandal, or a whitewash of it, or a jeremiad against the system, or an analysis of the hopelessness of the tuition crisis, then skip it. But if your instincts tell you that it is better to follow the traditional Torah path in times of crisis – doing soul-searching rather than finger-pointing – then listen to this recent shiur by my good friend Rabbi Moshe Hauer in Baltimore. It is full of sincerity, integrity, insight and sound advice. It will not solve the crisis overnight, but it will reassure you that there are good people in the Torah world who still have their heads screwed on right.
Kudos to Bracha Poliakoff, Baltimore, for the suggestion
