Today in Tablet Magazine, Staff Writer Marissa Brostoff—following up on yesterday’s article about the sex scandal surrounding conversion macher Rabbi Leib Tropper—tells the story from the opposite perspective: that of a woman, Shannon Orand, who approached Tropper about converting and was in turn allegedly solicited for sex. If you have the stomach for it, we have transcripts of some of Orand’s lurid phone conversations with (allegedly) Tropper. We’ll try to keep it clean(er) on The Scroll today.
