How many mental cases have ultra-Orthodox communities produced?

The Haredi mother of an infant who drowned in a jacuzzi in Ashdod has been found to be mentally unsuited for trial:
The mother of a month-old baby who drowned in a hotel jacuzzi earlier this month will not stand trial after a psychiatrist determined her mentally unfit.

The baby drowned while the family, from the city of Beit Shemesh near Jerusalem, was vacationing in a hotel in the coastal city of Ashdod during the Passover holiday.

Paramedics said they attempted to resuscitate the infant and rushed him to the city’s Assuta Medical Center, but medical staff were unable to save his life.

The baby’s parents were detained as suspects in the death and have had their remand extended. The mother was suspected of criminal wrongdoing, while the father is reportedly suspected of obstructing justice.

But a regional psychiatrist who examined the mother has concluded she was “not responsible for her actions,” meaning that she cannot stand trial, Hadashot news reported Thursday.

A court has extended her remand by six additional days, until next Wednesday.
Will she be institutionalized? Presumably. Which leaves us with the question of just how many people in Haredi insular societies were turned into basket cases by their poor education? Because that's surely what led to this terrible incident, and that's one more reason why they have to get out of that awful 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 don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
