Hasidic Rebel

September 6, 2010

For some time now I’ve been interested in finding out more about Orthodox Jewish society – it’s so utterly alien to me, I can’t help but be fascinated. Specifically, I’ve wanted to know if it ever happens that people born into this community ever break away – and if so, what are their views looking back into the world they left behind. After a bit of googling, I came across a blog by a guy calling himself “Hasidic Rebel”; in turn this lead me onto a website he founded (unpious.com) and an interview he gave to the (New York) Village Voice. Makes for some interesting reading:
