Misplaced priorities

Asher A. Nov’s letter (“The Greatest Sin?” June 13th) decrying the JTNews’s reporting of the facts surrounding the Eli Varon case displays an unfortunate corruption of priorities.
Janis Siegel did not humiliate anybody. She reported the facts of an important case that deals with an issue that our community must honestly confront. The charges being brought are the result of an investigation by the police and have nothing to do with “destroying this young man’s reputation.” They are about protecting the victim.
Dr. Nov also injects anti-Semitism and BDS into a topic that has nothing to do with either. To imply that they are relevant to this case merely distracts from the important conversations that we should be having about making sure our children are safe.
