Frum Satire strives to raise the level of Jewish Blogging

Frumsatire.net, since its inception, has endeavored to raise the standard of Jewish online reporting, providing news in a Torahdike manner and publicizing the hashkafos and psakim of our gedolei rabbonim.

Taking a look at the large number of ‘Jewish’ sites in cyberspace. There are a disproportionate number of sites representing left-wing or fringe segments of the Jewish world. There are so few that are truly representative of the Torah world and the ideals we hold dear. Frumsatire.net has and will continue to maintain its strict standards, following the guidance of experts in the chareidi media world and the advice of rabbonim.

We are stepping up to the plate to provide voices of reliable Torah hashkafa to be heard and read online.

Now, the Frumsatire Revolution is taking its next step, and part of it has been a change of ownership and management at the site. We are keeping all our talented writers -Heshy Fried, Schwartzie, Aliza Hausman and Simcha Levenberg – and will continue to feature the same inspiring and intriguing news, Torah and hashkafa as we have in the past. Frumsatire.net has had the least strict moderation of all Jewish online media of this kind, but even looser levels of moderation are now being put in place.

It is important to note that strict moderation does not preclude the sharing of opinions. Nor do strict standards mean that the news and entertainment cannot be creative and fun. What matters is that the content and presentation is hashkafically acceptable and appropriate.

Baruch Hashem, we have merited for many of the gedolei roshei yeshivas in the United States to have taken an active interest in our activities, and we are pleased to announce that we will be raising the bar of our standards even more.

The current undertaking is part of the larger initiative of the Frumsatire Network, which is discussed in a separate post.

    There were about 47 words in this post which went over my chiloni (in the Israeli sense) head but I’ll say good job. The world needs more humor.

    Interesting about your perception of lack of right-wing/Torah blogs. Seems like the majority of them here in Israel fall into that category.

    Freakin’ HILARIOUS Heshy! ROFL. I for one am heartened by your bold commitment to upholding true Torah ideals.

    Small quibbles:
    “least strictest moderation” should be “least strict”
    “Nor does strict standards” should be “Nor do strict standards”
    Sorry, my Mom is an English teacher. :^)

      Good catch. You should have seen it before the edit! 🙂

      Don’t correct heshy’s grammar. He doesn’t give a ****. Also, if you’ve ever read chareidi news reporting, that’s kind of how their grammar is; so the parody is true to the thing parodied.

    Nice parody of charedi SOPs!

    You wrote “torahdike”.

        I’m laughing. btw, I notice some editing has been done. I’m all for not ending sentences with prepositions if you’re writing news articles, but your blog is fairly conversational in nature, and ending sentences with stuff like, “… not something to which I am used,” just sounds funny. Option 1: Embrace the conversational nature of 1st-person narrative (snoop bloggy blog) and end your sentence with a preposition. Option 2: Make it read better by using different words, like saying “to which I am accustomed.” Or just keep doing what you’re doing. I wish I had more time to read these days, but it seems like you’ve got a good crew of regular commenters.
