My name is Miriam Woelke and I live in Jerusalem. I made Aliyah from Germany in June 2000.
Despite the fact that I write a lot about the haredi world in general, I am not part of any group. I am neither Chabad nor Breslov nor anything else.
Years ago, I did Teshuva and wanted to be part of haredi society. Thus, I went to a Litvishe seminary and tried my best to be a happy part of society. However, it didn’t work out. Not everybody is meant to be haredi and what happened to me is that I found myself more and more depressed. In the end, I left and since then, I don’t look haredi but I somehow do stick to society. It would never occur to me to change to the national religious or anything else.
