In defense of Pearl Perry Reich
I’m waiting two years for a get (Jewish divorce). My ex is absolutely refusing to give it. I’m frum (religious – orthodox) and a good mom. He doesn’t even have an interest in seeing my son; he will go for as long as 7 months with no contact whatsoever. He’s just refusing because he can. And, every single rabbi I went to says he doesn’t have to give it if he doesn’t want, and tough luck on me. And, these are “rabbonim (rabbis)” from across the board. I started trying to get help from within Lubavitch. They don’t care. I went to modern Orthodox, Yeshivish, Sephardic… They all say the same thing. That its better to live with an abusive guy than get divorced.So yes, Perry is right. It is a cult. But not just to those who try to leave it….
