A Thrown Stone

Submitted to the Breslov Center by email.

Rabbi Dror Moshe Cassouto, a 33-year-old Breslover Hasid, lives with his wife and four sons in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Mea Shearim, one of the centers of Haredi life in Israel. He never looks directly at a woman other than his wife, and he believes that men and women have roles in nature that in modern society have been reversed “because we live in darkness.” His goal is to spread the light. “God watches over the Jewish nation as long as it studies Torah,” he said. Still, the spitting incidents and Nazi talk horrify him. He says hard-liners have caused harm to the Haredim. Asked about the recent troubles, Rabbi Cassouto shook his head and said, "A fool throws a stone into a well and 1,000 sages can't remove it."
