Sometimes, you do something wrong. You have good intentions, but you fail to think through all the results of your actions, and your intentions backfire and you create a bad situation instead of helping the situation.

This blog post is not gone.

It’s currently set aside, until I speak to the editors of Times of Israel. Because if it were up to me, I’d delete it entirely.

Because my goal in life, and with this blog, is to increase love of God, love of Torah, and love of our fellow Jews, and this blog post, as previously written, did not help me accomplish that goal.

I regret posting it.

I made a mistake.

And for that, I ask your forgiveness for any pain I caused anyone.
