Recommended Reading: The Institutionalization of Personal Choice

ProfK over at Conversations In Klal has an excellent post regarding the loss of individualism in the Orthodox Jewish community today. As she writes:

There is a push to institutionalize the practices of Klal down to the smallest item, such that personal choice is being pushed out of existence. There have been communal minhag changes that boggle the mind of anyone with even a modicum of common sense. And we are all at fault for letting this happen.

This is actually one of those things that I wish I'd written about, except that ProfK has done a far better job of it than I ever would have.

Had to stop blushing before I could say thank you both for the link to the posting and for your kind words about what I wrote.
