It is being reported that Shaul Spitzer, the person accused in the attempted murder of Aron Rottenberg and his family, has been released from the hospital and is back in the yeshiva in New Square.
The fact that Spitzer has been welcomed back to the yeshiva shows that moral compass of the leaders of the community is severely misaligned.
In New Square, you can be thrown out of school for the crime of having a parent who davens in the wrong shul, as happened to Rottenberg's daughter. You would, presumably, face expulsion if you had a television in your home, had unfiltered internet access, had the wrong books, etc. But attempt to murder a family in their sleep by fire? For that, you get to come back to the yeshiva.
Assuming the yeshiva is under the control of the Skvere Rebbe, I have to admit that the fact that Spitzer is allowed back into the yeshiva really makes the condemnation of the attack very suspect. How can he condemn the attack in public and yet allow Spitzer back into the school when he expels other people from educational institutions for far, far less? I'm also left to wonder if the leaders of the New Square community haven't completely lost their sense of morality.
