The book that I’ve been working on for over a year has been banned by major Orthodox organizations before it has even officially gone to press. After seeking several approbations from respected individuals within the Torah observant community, I have been asked not to proceed with my publication. This will not stop me! Cross-Currents is currenly debating this whole issue and several other bloggers are showing major support for me.

The book, titled YOU DIDN’T HEAR THIS FROM ME, contains inspiring stories about Gadolim, Rabbonim, and present day talmidei chachamim. The unique thing about this book is that it tells the amazing stories of people whose written works have, at one time or another, been banned by the Orthodox community. It also tells the stories behind the banned publications.

That right, finally there is a book about banned books that’s already being banned before it comes out! Included are stores about such giants as the RAMBAM and the RAMCHAL. It also includes more recent stories about indviduals like Rabbi Naftali Zvi Yehuda Berlin (the Netziv), Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, and Rabbi Noson Slifkin.

As a bonus the book also contains my award winning essay on The Catcher In The Rye, titled “Holden Caulfield- Phoniness, Angst, Rebellon, and other factors that lead to At-Risk-Teens and what we can do to bring them to Teshuva”.

Self-published copies of YOU DIDN’T HEAR THIS FROM ME are currently available for sale on eBay.

    Thank godness the chareidim have done something outrageous for us to be up in arms about.

    Lately, the jblogs have really been wanting for an issue to rally around.

    Power to the blog people!!

    “You guys know this is a joke? Right?”

    You’re darn right it’s a joke that the so-called “establishment” thinks they can just go banning every book that they don’t agree with!

    When will it end? A joke indeed! I already started a new blog to protest this travesty.

    I won’t believe it’s really banned until I see all the banning rabbis’ names and signatures on the first page. Anti-haskamos are a great sales tool for an anti-sefer.

    I think that would be a great book.

    My friend made a Purim version of his Torah Rag, and he included a Haskama that said something to the effect of, though I didn’t actually read it, I’m sure it’s ok and I believe every person was put on this earth for a reason.

    I told I thought they all were like that!
