Opportunity to participate to a research project (Not a Joke)


As has happened one time before, I have been contacted by some Yeshiva Yingel who is working on a doctoral dissertation related to Jewish identity in America, who asked that I forward along his request to my Talmidim.

Since most of you are a bunch of good for nothing Leytzanim anyway, it would be a Groisse Mitzvah if you give 15 minutes of your time in filling out his survey. (Trust me -- not surfing porn for a quarter of an hour is probably good for you, you Minuval.)

The request and the requisite link are below:


My name is Sruly Bomzer and I am a 5th year doctoral candidate in the CW Post Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program. I am currently in the initial stages of collecting data for my dissertation, which involves examining common childhood experiences of Jews raised in the Orthodox tradition (regardless of current affiliation). This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) of CW Post, and is being supervised by Jill Rathus, Ph.D. I am writing to you to request your help in disseminating the online survey that is my primary means of collecting data. The survey, available here:

is completely anonymous and takes no longer than 10-15 minutes to complete. I have followed your blog and believe that your readership represents an ideal sample of participants. Because this project is not funded, I cannot offer you any compensation, however any effort you could spare to inform you readers of my study would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions regarding this research, feel free to contact me at
