As Elul rushes toward Tishrai, my good friend Joey Lipner and I have penned a letter of apology to our classmates who were compelled to "wrestle" with Rabbi Finkelstein. In it, we apologize for never having said or done anything, even as we were quite aware of the bizarre things that were going on. If you were in MTA in those years, or if you know someone who was, please consider signing the letter and/or passing it along. We hope that it will bring some tikkun to this awful situation. Here's the link:
At the same time, we await the report that Yeshiva will be putting out revealing the results of its investigation. I have received assurances that it will be released in full to the public. This is of course a vital first step in fulfilling the spirit of up Rabbi Lamm's statement of apology.
