I posted an incorrect report alleging that Midreshet Moriah had a sex abuser working for them. I was wrong. It involved an otherwise trustworthy source and two people with very similar names, both originally from the same place.
I apologize for my error. I have no reason whatsoever to believe there are any such problems involving any of the staff at Midreshet Moriah.
I apologize to Midreshet Moriah.
If any of you have circulated my original erroneous post, I urge you to take steps to remove it and to instead send this correction. Because this is the recruiting season for post-high school year-in Israel programs, it is especially critical to do this as soon as possible.
I thank my readership and others for taking this action.
P.S. I try very hard to get my facts right and when I make mistakes I correct them as soon as possible. This doesn’t happen often, but even one mistake, is one too many. To date I have deleted approximately 5 posts out of about 1,100 since I started blogging. All the corrections were made within hours or days of the error, as soon as I confirmed the error. Each time I make a mistake, I take a hard look at how to avoid that mistake in the future. Based on this one I have made some decisions about further checking information in the future which I will implement. In the meantime, while it is embarrassing to me, I encourage all of you to broadcast this correction in the interests of fairness to Midreshet Moriah.
