Recent Thoughts

Okay, my humor's nothing to write home about.

I hope you all don't mind, but I'm going to get a bit more serious here. And yes, I will be turning off comments for now.

My other blog is more of an anti-religious place, while this place can be more pro-religious.

I wanted to discuss reasons why I might want to go back on the derech. No, not to get anyone's hopes up, just to clear my head a little.

Well, I don't believe in God, and I wasn't that happy being frum anyway. However, it's the community I was raised in, and I'm much more familiar with it than anything else. I might even go so far as to say I'm more comfortable there than anywhere else. Maybe.

Mayebe I can be somewhat Orthoprax, and just be a regular frum guy again, with less obligations? Kind of just play the part, without committing too much?

Just thinking.


  1. dont go back OTD! its not wort it, even if its hard it will pay at the end
    i will never go back to be what i was

  2. How come no one posts here anymore? Did you stop this blog or something?

  3. Anonymous: I just need to come up with ideas.

  4. OTD
    I am not frum nor was I ever so I don't how hard it is to live within that framework. I do understand your desire to be part of a community. It's important to most people but I think especially for us(Jews). What are your thoughts on it lately? I am not advocating anything except getting through this life with as little pain as possible. If you see a way to do it with less or little commitment then go for it. Frum or not frum Jews need to stick together. Good luck brother!

  5. Lisanoor: I don't know. I guess community is valuable, but many of my experiences with the community have been horrendous. But I guess I'll eventually find some sort of a Jewish community where I feel comfortable.
