Former Haredis who left the sect to serve in IDF

Tablet writes about young people in the Haredi community who've left what they feel is not a helpful lifestyle, and have also gone on to serve their country in the IDF.

Update: on a related note, a writer for The Jewish Press suggests that those who leave Haredi sects and become secular should try modern Orthodoxy first, since it can have the advantages and provide the satisfaction they may not find in the Haredi lifestyle.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I do not know if I'll ever be as good as him, but I do my best.
