Why the Jewish Blogosphere Exists

GHassid and I started this blog when the Gadol Hador closed down his blog. We lamented how there simply wasn't anything else out there that could compare to his blog, the issues he tackled and the discussions in the comments section that his blog fomented.

Well, thankfully the Gadol Hador has been back for some time now and if you ever needed a reason to read his blog, here it is. Read the comments to this post where GH is particularly active.

This is why the Jewish blogosphere exists. Long live the King!

Bchavod Harav Godol Hador Shlita,

We are honored by your visit and we are humbled by your presence. To answer your question, we are Orthodox Jews who have been raised in a culture of learning and Torah values. We deeply cherish our way of life and our heritage. Your willingness to ask the hard questions and pursue the truth to wherever it may be, we believe to be part of our tradition and the hallmark of a Jew. Seemingly this was the way of our forefathers till the time of the late Achronim. We have since lost our way. We, the people of Israel and the current leadership, in our view are missing the forest for the trees. This disappoints us greatly. Our mission is to be a light onto the nations. We can not be that light when covered by the shadow of fools. We are only respected because of our knowledge and by incorporating all our talents with that knowledge into serving G-d by living a Torah life. To dismiss serious questions is to fail in that mission. We want to support in whatever small way we can, whomever exerts effort in this area, thereby bringing glory to our holy nation and our holy G-d.

That is who we are.

Humbly we remain,

The Gabbai
The GHassid

P.S. One last Hirhur. We also have a sense of humor and enjoy a good laugh.
