Kudos to The Jewish Link for publishing Elizabeth Kratz’s magnificent essay, “Am I a Lonely Woman of Faith?” (May 18, 2017). It is one of the best pieces we have ever read in your paper.

Mrs. Kratz rightly takes to task journalists who, rather than seeking the truth from all corners, simply (and lazily) follow the secular herd in vilifying the most dynamic and flourishing segment of the Jewish community, the Orthodox.

Our community is blessed to have leaders like Mrs. Kratz whose feminism isn’t held hostage to a preconceived progressive agenda, and whose values are built on a love and appreciation of Am Yisrael and Torat Yisrael.
