  1. The severity of this incident is hard to comprehend. Out of respect for the parties involved please keep all negative, sarcastic, and ideas on how it could have been prevented out of the comments. Thank You.

  2. I’m sure many will agree with me that TLS gets a lot of credit in how they decide to post a story like this – and there have been many other stories in the past that TLS has made the right call in how much information to put out there. We all recognize that this is a story that obviously will get out and for a lot of reasons needs to be put out there, yet at the same time, sensitivty and halachic considerations need to be applied in addition to the sensitivty of the many parties involved. I just think TLS plays that balance very well in reporting the story yet not putting out there all the available information.

  3. I cant believe that people can post such shocking comments when a boy is in terrible pain and the family are in shock from this horrific incident

  4. open a shulchan aruch, simcha. ‘cool masmid’ made a powerful and truthful statement on actions of loshen hara in day to day life today. lets say tehillim and be one nation

  5. If the owner of the Scoop would have been told a day before he opened the Scoop that he’d report such a story, he would not have believed he could fall so low….

  6. To all those who want to bury their heads in the sand and pretend there’s nothing concerning in our community, please open your eyes and help make our world safer. If you can’t handle real news reports, go read fairy tales or sifrei chizuk, but let the news be shared here for those who need to recognize the issues and address them.
    We don’t need to know exactly whodunnit, but we need to admit that our world has alot to improve upon. There are violent crimes, abuse, neglect, drugs, and more right in our midst. Let’s rise to the challenge and take things seriously.

  7. @A, I don’t think TLS has fallen so low. It’s the community TLS is reporting about which has, nebach, fallen so low. We must ask ourselves how such a thing could happen.

  8. What a stupid comment. What exactly is the issue? You are most likely a troll for that other site that uses a Jewish word as a title for its site.

  9. its an absolute disgrace that TLS published this article. Shame on you for all the gossip you publish that is not necessary. Only loshon horah develops from this.

  10. Rabbosi, what we need now is tehillim for the buchur, not more attacks on each other. The Aibishter is crying out and we are ignoring him (or her). Gut Shabbos!

  11. Its a horrible thing to happen to anyone and anywhere and especially in a yeshiva.
    Lets all go out bi’achdus and daven for, Levi Ahron ben Chaya, lirfuah sheleims bikarov mamesh
