Culture shock. That’s the way people usually describe it. It’s the feeling people get when they realize they’ve been dunked, looking-glass style, into an entirely different standard of normalcy. Suddenly, they realize that they don’t look like anyone else, sound like anyone else, or react like anyone else around them. They are the strange ones, not the locals.
That’s what this blog is about.
It’s a collection of stories, voicings and ventings. The varied experiences of frum individuals in a non-frum environment for the very first time.
