Don't Go, Tzemach

One of the most intelligent, embattled and straight-thinking Jewish bloggers, Tzemach Atlas, is calling it quits. If you want to see the down-side of Habad, read the blog of this devoted individual whose faith has been deeply injured by the hypocrisy and worse of the world within which he lives.

To him I say, 'Don't Leave!' Either the Torah, or the blogosphere. I know that in your circles Judaism is seen as a zero sum game. However, there are many legitimate paths to the King (Guide III, 51). One is shomer mitzvos because of what the King says, not because of what the Jews do. This week's Parsha (end) bears that out.
