This Haredi student must be going to public high school because he agrees with the leftism prevalent

Now here's an example of a Haredi student who does attend a public school, but as you're about to find out, the politics involved are why this turns out to be sad news instead of the good it could've been:
While I anticipated all the religious queries, I never foresaw the unconditional acceptance I would receive on a daily basis at City. I have never once experienced any anti-Semitism. My Christian guidance counselor proudly calls me her “Jewish son.” My best friend at school is a devout Pakistani Muslim. We won a cake-baking contest for chemistry class during our junior year; I baked it at my home and he ate it because he knew he could trust my “kashrus.” I started and still currently run the first Jewish Student Union at City. Wearing a tallis, prayer shawl, I read the Megillah of Esther from an authentic scroll with fellow Jewish students on Purim of my sophomore year; I was pleasantly surprised by how many curious and even admiring non-Jewish students and teachers attended my leining. I plan to read Megillah again this year.
If you think that sounds bizarre and fishy, wait'll you see what comes next:
By being in City, my outlook became more diverse as I encountered climate change, gender studies, Black Lives Matter, Muslims and the Hmong for the first time. All these new voices had value and prompted action. I joined clubs and volunteered for organizations with cultural, religious and ethnic perspectives that did not necessarily revolve around a divine revelation on the sandy summit of Mt. Sinai. I contributed time and skills to scouts, science fiction, veterans and building an Auschwitz exhibit. I debated politics and social justice with CNN journalist Fareed Zakaria and Stanford sociology professor Robb Willer. Rather than blindly aligning my thoughts with an immutable theological narrative I now also see, hear, observe and reach my own conclusions regarding matters of knowledge and authenticity.
Oh...my...god. He's perfectly okay with Zakaria, who's anti-Trump and pro-Islam, and sees nothing wrong with propagandists like BLM who made martyrs out of criminals and told plenty of lies? Somehow, it's just like a Haredi of that sort to associate himself with such a bad crowd. Similarly, it's just like his own brethren back in the Haredi world not to teach him why Islam is not something you should be fooled by, nor the BLM propaganists or Zakaria, for that matter. The Satmar certainly don't.

Man, this is one student who's really fallen in with the wrong kind of "outside" crowd, making it impossible to appreciate his venture into a secular studies program. I wouldn't be shocked at all if he practically entered it because of the political leanings involved. All courtesy of an insular education system that did nothing to prepare him for what awaited him. I wouldn't be surprised if he grows up to be a real leftist tool.

  • 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.
