Rosh Hashanah, the start of the High Holidays, was fast approaching. I had promised myself that this year would be different. For years I have followed their activities with a mild interest, just an observer, as though their concerns were not my own, but this year, in the wake of recent media storms and false accusations, I promised myself that I would finally take a stand.

As I pushed open the doors of their rather nondescript office I took a deep breath - welcome to largest life saving industry in all of Israel – Agudat Efrat.
