I see you are busy on some big project, but in the meantime put this on for all the Suscher Katzes and Shulem Deens, they didn't invent the wheel of misfortune.
Poland in the 20's and 30's, when the OTD winds blew in to the charedi homes; suddenly the rash of suicides started.
A unknown phenomenon. But they called it "a result of foresaking Torah and faith." They weren't mental health professionals, but that's what they were saying. 2015 is no different, the great organization Footsteps will not help these inflicted souls.
