An End to Denial

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/world/article/an_end_to_denial_20010907

The Borough Park section of Brooklyn is one of America's most visibly Jewish neighborhoods. On several residential blocks of one- and two-family brick homes, almost every front door has a mezuzah. Modestly dressed women push strollers, while girls in dresses and boys in tzitzit and kippot play on the sidewalks. Sixteenth Avenue, one of the main drags, is lined with religious study centers and yeshivot, small synagogues and Judaica stores. And in the middle of it all is an agency that runs a treatment program for Orthodox Jewish pedophiles.
