The Times They Are A Changin'

As Bob Dylan said, The times, they are a changin..

things are changing in the Haredi world.

abuse is being discussed openly. The frum news sites are now reporting on the cases as they become public. The discussion has been brought to the public. the cases recently have been so horrific that reporting is being encouraged and revulsion is being expressed. Batei Din are censuring molesters/abusers publicly and not just making stories go away quietly. I am sure there is still a long way to go, but things are changing.

In the USA the leaders of Torah UMesorah have had enough and are now saying to report. Behadrei has reported that Torah UMesorah is saying that 1 out of every 5 kids are victims of abuse. The Novominsker Rebbe said we have no sympathy for abusers. He is having the affiliated camps prepare plans to train the counselors to identify abuse.

They still need to put words into actions, but things are clearly changing...
