In April 2009 I wrote a post about the Bnei Baruch Kabbalah La-Am. Since then the post has had a steady stream of search traffic, along with comments from both members and former members. I recently closed comments there both because I did not want to give more space to members, and because a former member started attacking me as a sympathizer. Ironically, she claimed that since my post on Bnei Baruch could be found via Google I must be in cahoots with them.
When a reader, “Some Guy,” asked to open the comments section, I emailed him. He sent me a 6000-word account of his experience with Bnei Baruch. I believe it’s important for the information to be out there for people looking for information, but it’s not really an ordinary post. So I’ve published it as a page. Pages aren’t dated, so they don’t appear in the archives. You can comment here or there, as long as I leave them open.
The writer also sent me follow-up comments in response to a question about finances, which I may publish at a later point. I’ve corresponded with the writer over the past few days and know his real name. His account rings true, but I’ll let you be the judge.
