Last night the Agudah held an emergency asifah at which a number of Rabbanim and Ben Brafman spoke. Ben's speech is available here.

What I found amusing is that at an asifah called in response to the recent shady dealings in Deal, the guy introducing Ben Brafman had to call out two idiots who had parked in front of people's driveways.

    I thought Ben's speech was great, but how does his message square with the chareidi leadership's approach to the world?
    He essentially says that the root of the problem is that the community has isolated itself from the secular world, and that to remedy the problems, they need to integrate instead.
