Of course the father dismissed him. Judaism is not a private religion. You LITERALLY cannot even say some prayers without a minyan, or 10 adult Jews (in those days, 10 adult males). You don’t accept g-d in your heart etc. Judaism is NOT CHRISTIANITY.
thats a big hairy deal. Sending a family to be “pioneers” for Judaism in a place with no synagogue in walking distance- because observant Jews don’t drive on Shabbat- is asking them to STOP PRACTICING JUDAISM, as any Jew watching this would instantly know.
and my beating your child? That idiot said his dad was worse than Hitler.
americans at large didn’t know about death camps and shootings but Jews did. We KNEW. It was in the Yiddish papers.
or so said my late father and uncles who all fought in WWII. So says my mom, who was a little girl. Jews knew what was happening. He earned that slap. BIG TIME. He’s just lucky his dad walked out. At 15, he’s more than old enough to know better.
So no. The parents are not ignorant child abusers. They are Jews. It’s kind of sad this still has to be explained but I guess it does.
one reason you don’t find a lot of Jewish farmers in America is YOU NEED A MINYAN. In the old country with small farms, there were many Jewish farmers. But in America you can’t practice Judaism if you cannot meet up with 9 other Jews regularly.
period the end. That’s just how the religion works. You can’t say Kaddish. You can’t read Torah. You just cannot.
So this resettlement program is 100 percent eradication of Judaism.
