An author has written a book about being born and raised in Britain in a Punjabi Sikh household. He writes:-

'Parents of Westernized offspring are keen for them to marry Indian spouses to keep alive the traditions of religiosity, illiteracy, alcoholism, manual labor and domestic violence,' he says. 'Sikh girls don't have personalities, they have post-traumatic stress disorder', he swipes.

Thank God we Jews are not like that (especially as regards a tradition of manual labor).

In some Muslim countries, veiled women also go to the beauty parlor. Although no one will see it (except their husbands, and perhaps female friends/relatives), it's a release & helps their self esteem.

someone intimated that baruch lanner molested girls at his position as principal of hillel in deal, nj. can anyone confirm this?

Shmarya

I think that was part of the charges against him.

i don;t understand how she gets her publicity. If she can't advertise in the district and no one talks about it...how do they know?
Also why are they so against make-up?
Pretty sad they had to do this in secret as if it;s some sort of Brothel...maybe there is a secret brother for the men there that no one knows about because it's so secret.

Hey jj, you were in Hillel too?

"someone intimated that baruch lanner molested girls at his position as principal of hillel in deal, nj. can anyone confirm this?"

That's what he was convicted of in court, and what he served prison time for.

She gets her publicity by word of mouth. Best advertising.

'But for now it's an unsupervised arena. The rabbis are apparently avoiding a confrontation with women in an area that is so close to their hearts," she explains.'

A interesting observation. years ago when learning a YU we were covering the issue of married women and head coverings.

The issue of sheitl came up ie it can look better than some womens own hair. Besides the standard answer of that the halacha pertains tothe womans own hair the rebbe said historically and sociologically in fact the Rabbis in europe wer enot happy with sheitl's. The orthodox women were following the wayss of the non Jews by wearing them because they felt it was prettier then a hat or tichel. But the Rabbanim did not want to take on their wives.

I beleive R Ovadia Yoseef as a contmporary non chassidic posek says if you wear a sheitl you have to wear a hat on top.

( I do know some chassidic charedei women wear a sheitl and a head covering on top. )

Someone intimated- rather - that Lanner was transferred to Hillel in Deal after he was well known to have molested tens of girls in NCSY. The reason being (allegedly) because the Hillel in Deal is composed of mostly Sephardim (so who cares if he molests them, they're Sephardim...).

Michael Dorfman

Shalom.
Very simular to reports fro Islamic Respublic of Iran

Boruch Lanner did not go to prison because of molesting girls. he was convicted of improperly touching one girl once.

Sadly for this uproven charge he langushed in jail for nearly 4 years.

May God have mercy on you all for your vile and baseless accusations.

I know Boruch well and I will tell you that he is innocent of any crime. These idiots who need to sneak into a beauty parlor Yikes!!! the frum nonsense is making me sick.

Yochanan Lavie

Improperly touching one girl is innocence? Making lewd remarks to minors, and kneeing guys in the balls is innocence? I know Lanner, too, and I've witnessed it with my own eyes. He is a sick puppy. Maybe prison isn't the right venue- maybe the nuthouse is.

You can call me all the names you want. It's nothing I haven't heard before from the Lannerians.

R

what has secret beauty salons got to do with Lanner? Was he spotted visiting one?

Yochanan Lavie

No beauty parlour, open or secret, can beautify Lanner's moral ugliness. (That he is physically ugly is poetic, but irrelevent to his character).
