    This debate is a real blessing from Hashem!!!

    Nat Lewin doesn’t have a leg to stand on and Bruce Friedrich will very respectfully deflate all of the opposing arguments and the audience will realize how our “so called” Rabbinic Leadership utterly failed to utilize the “Agriprocessors Schechitah Scandal” to, once and for all, completely clean up the Kosher Animal Industries.

    Nothing will change. Right-wing Orthodoxy’s “rationale” for the performance of the “Halacha of ritual” is that it makes one a better person. The reality is, of course, that it does not ( neecessarily ) do so. If it did, the RAMBAN would have not made is famous comment re that one can be a disgusting person within its confines.They will persist in denial of this reality, idealistic people will leave and the small-minded “leadership” will persist in disfunction; doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different outcome.
