As I was scrolling down the Times, I stopped at this — an article about Amber Adler, an Orthodox Jewish woman who ran for New York’s City Council. She is shocked at the bilious reaction she got from mostly males in her “community.” I am not.
Ms. Adler is divorced. Had an abusive husband. If you don’t know about the misogynistic barriers to divorce Orthodox Judaism has constructed, read this article for that alone. It explains how difficult it was for Ms. Adler to get a “get.”
I just stopped typing to take some deep breaths. That’s how much this upset me.
