outoftheorthobox.blogspot.com She's asking for $25 a month for an ad, $25 for a guest post or $75 for four guest posts. I wonder if she's going to get anything given that she only posts once a week at the most. I think she'd like to be the Jewish version of the old Raising Olives (when RO was posting all the time and had lots of sponsors and partners), but it's going to be hard for her to build that kind of following when there aren't the same numbers of Jewish fundies online.
"The article's author, a friend of the Stern family, describes that his wife, Zahava, had dropped off Shoshie at her home, but later received a frantic call from Shoshie's sister asking where she was. A desperate call-fest ensued, with both families trying to locate Shoshie. Finally Zahava called Denise, Shoshie's mother, to see if they had heard anything. Denise, who had just heard the tragic news moments earlier, blurted out: "Shoshie's been killed! She was hit by a car while she tried to cross Palmetto Park Road. She's dead!" Zahava was overcome with emotion but a few minutes later Denise called back. Why? To apologize for blurting out the news over the phone, and asking if Zahava was alright, and to ask her for forgiveness. Yes. Forgiveness." So... if you just found out your child was tragically killed, you can't blurt out the news when someone asks? And you need forgiveness if you do? What is it with fundies trying to wipe out human emotion... outoftheorthobox.blogspot.com/
A form of CollegeMinus is very popular among right-wing Yeshivish Orthodox Jews. They don't go through the Christian CollegePlus program, of course, but they take CLEPs and finish up with a few courses from either Thomas Edison or a local college. From Ruchi's Facebook, it looks like she's considering it for her eighteen-year-old daughter.
For those who follow OOTOB, on Ruchi's (public) Facebook she writes that a blog reader told her reading OOTOB has convinced her that Orthodox Judaism is not for her. Ruchi seems disappointed but is taking it in stride; some of the Orthodox commenters are more upset. There's an interesting discussion going on there--shows that some Orthodox Jews can be just as "evangelizing" as Christians, though they usually keep it more under wraps. Her Facebook is linked from the blog. outoftheorthobox.blogspot.com/
I generally find this blog interesting but she regularly annoys me as well. Like this? "3. Phrases like "I need some me-time"; "It's the principle of the matter"; and "I just need to vent/rant" are usually rationalizations for selfish behavior camouflaged as mental health directives." really, having any time to yourself is selfish? I am an introvert and I am raising two toddlers and yes, I NEED regular me-time. I don't think that's selfish but I guess that's why I'll never be orthodox. I know it's minor. Just rubbed me wrong.

longskirts posted a topic in Ruchi (Out of the Orthobox)I just came across this conversation in the comments on Out of the Ortho Box. I think I agree with anon. I just can't imagine seeing genocide, slavery, etc. and feeling only positive emotions. http://outoftheorthobox.blogspot.com/20 ... l#comments
