      Out of the Closet


      “Shovavim” is over but the yetzer hara is still very much with us. So to help people out all year round, I wrote a new 70-page booklet on Shmirat HaBrit that is now available for free downloading at www.jewishsexuality.com.

      People who have read it say that it is a revolutionary treatment of the subject, particularly its use of powerful visuals, which bring the issue out of the closet in a way that can’t be ignored.

      Some readers of this blog try to play down the importance of this subject, but I receive heartbreaking cries for help each week, from students and teachers, married people and singles, young people and old.

      Every week, I receive desperate cries for help.

      For those of you who would like to help, I have almost completed the Hebrew version of the booklet, which G-d willing, I hope to mass print and distribute free in Israel to high schools, colleges, yeshivot, youth groups, soldiers, sports clubs, etc.

      Trying to put out the inferno.

      Your donations will help me reach as many people as possible. As stated in the “Tanya,” the giving of charity is one of the main paths of atonement over sexual transgressions (Igeret HaTshuva, Ch.3). And helping others break free from the darkness of sin to the life-giving light of t’shuva is considered to be the greatest tikun of all (Zohar, Parshat Trumah 128B.)
