    We have been many horrific stage to remain Jewish at heart in the physic and spiritual world. And we see these women trying to force change on a people that do not change! We have remained kosher despite the world converted us to all kind of faith. Our mothers have brought up stadikims that have become kings and queens of the world. And now these few women are trying to impose on us Jews new way? Why? equality? we are not equal you woman are privilege you bring life we man can't! Freedom? then why are you trying to take my freedom away for you to destroy my tradition? Power? There are not special power in a tallis or a tefillin. The true power is in one's heart and mind and the power of unity. Women remain the creator of our nation and let us be your slave in having to follow these laws of putting on tefilins and tallis and yamaka. Be free but don't destroy me in the process or humiliate my home or just cause more hatred against my people!
