This rabbi’s daughter has an unorthodox custody battle on her hands.
Pearlperry Reich, 30, a stunning mother of four, said she’s done with the Hasidic community after it fought tooth-and-nail against her repeated attempts to end her rocky marriage — despite her claims of emotional and physical abuse.
Dalene Lane: That is my new favorite name, Pearlperry!
John Broyles: Dalene Pearlperry....kind of has a nice ring to it.
Dalene Lane: John Broyles hahahahahaha
John Broyles: Dalene Ray Lane your husband's name has to be Jerry Pearlperry or all bets are off!
Abu Hossain: All Mullas in every Religon are as dumy as Talebangelist.
Brian Kent: Don't believe everything you read.First of all the POST hates Orthodox Jews.When Rabbi Balkany was arrested the had a headline Robb-i.When he was aquitted it was on page 54.All of these things come down to one issue in the end....money.People need to be a little wiser and see the story beneath the story.
Janice Schacter Lintz: Domestic violence must be taken seriously. Why is a husband allowed to behave toward his wife worst than to a stranger? Why can he say words to her that if a child said them to another child in school it would be bullying under NYS Bullying law. It is time for Rabbis to stand up and say, the Jewish religion will no longer tolerate abuse. We need to break the silence so that more women feel safe coming forward to discuss it.
hollywood zombi: Miriam Orbach YOU SOUND LIKE YOU WERE BRAINWASHED- A MAN WHO REFUSES DIVORCE TO HIS EX IS ABUSIVE.PERIOD
Brian Kent: Domestic Violence is horrible but false accusations of it from gold diggers are worse.
Raymond Goffin: I never liked kosher before but I sure as hell could eat it now........
Charles Durham: good for her the orthodox of any religion are dangerous, unbalanced , and want to force every one to follow their superstitious ways. I think the orthodox jews, muslims and evangelicals should all live together and if there really is a god, they will exterminate each other.
Ritchard Rodriguez: Well you cant blame her for leaving, I mean they act like they own everything & she probably got tired of it. Let her live her life you bastards...
Anthony Cortese: Orthodox females are treated as property. These women have no rights and own nothing. They are forced into arranged marriages that are usually attached to some financial deal. They are traded and sold like animals.They get beatings for disobeying their husbands.These Jewish communities are a mess.
Roberta Arnone: My comments from real-life observation and hard facts have been deleted by some insecure spineless coward.
John Broyles: Get used to it. They can't handle the truth.
Brian Kent: Does anybody remember how the Post reported the DSK story.They had him , tried, convicted and executed...and then they had to reverse themselves because it was a pack of lies just like this.This is simply about winning a divorce case and getting money.Religion is not a part of this.
John Broyles: Ummm...right. The world believes you....NOT!!
Any community that forces marriage upon a woman or do not accept to let go of their members can be qualified as a SECT. I wouldn't be surprised if this possessive behavior toward their members ends up being prosecuted in criminal courts one day.
John Broyles: Shhh...you're going to kill their golden goose. A religion run by men for the benefit of men. I've seen too many cases of these old men marrying girls who border on children. I thought that picture was of her with her butt ugly father.
Monica DeJour: Miriam Orbach - Many of the women now are educated. I knew one young lady who was attending Brooklyn Law School who timed the delivery of her fifth child for the winter break. I believe she was 25 at the time.
Monica DeJour: Miriam - I inserted my remark to inform people that the orthodox women are not as "kept down" as the main article would seem to indicate. Personally, I was in awe of the young lady I knew-- She had a lot on her plate, and balanced all beautifully.
I'm just shocked, that the comments are so mild. Because I see a 30 year old woman, with 4 kids and NO Job on Facebook. Now everyone is saying good for her. She is probably getting Food Stamps and on Welfare Jews are sneaky like that. Had This been a Blk Woman, Asian Woman or Hispanic Woman. All kinds of hateful stuff would have been said.I personally think she is self centerd, she wants to be a model at age 30, yeah right. There is a Hidden Agenda Folks!
Manny Fuentes: The writers here are nuts.
Arguing with each other.
I think they don't have al lot.
To do, so me they bother.
Let people be what they want.
And enjoy what they are doing.
Before you go on your rant.
To the park you should be going.
The article could have been one sentence. She's hot, he's not.
Tony Nocella: Yes,...run fast and far,...well,...not too far. Run to Hiawatha ave. in Point Pleasant. Lakewood is only about 4 miles away. There you will find a single handsome man who is NOT Jewish, and who won't abuse you. Good post Kurt!
hollywood zombi: from the look in her face...seems like shes already hooked up elsewhere...probably waiting for that disgusting ex to rant her the divorce so she can marry again
Tony Nocella: Yeah,..probably. Good for her !
Arturo Valejo: I'd like to take this opportunity to invite her to join the cult, I mean, religion, me and my cat Scabby are organizing: The Church of the Bleached Bimbo.
Mark Frazier: Actually, I've been living a "war zone" life for years. And I'm single, don't drink. don't smoke, no addictions. Pretty ordinary. Yet, as Ed Kielty said, "We're going to take everything away from you, that you love." Since, murder, was too quick. I can relate.
way too hot to be orthodox, a backwards world of inbreeding and mental illness.
Crystal Crissy PerezSmith: I would hate to see her and her children end up like Susan Powell and her children, dead.... I hope she's granted full custody and move...God Bless her and those children...
Kathleen Tandy: So glad that she got out of that! That religion is no place for women. For men it's a paradise. For a woman it's jail.
I hope she has the sense to hire some personal security when she is out and about. Those men in that sect are crazy and will stop at nothing to get what they want.
Clark Celmayster: Though I am a conservative and jewish, the one and most true statement ever uttered by the communist Karl Marx was "Religion is the opiate of the people"! Anything taken to the extreme is not good! Be it Radical Islam, Judaism, Christianity or Atheism, drugs or other!
Many religions have seemingly not progressed out of the dark ages as another poster queried. Like anything else in life, if there is no progress, adaptation and modification in conjunction with current and future circumstance, then ultimately there is stagnation and extremism based on ignorance and blind faith. The sheep shall always follow without questioning...
The "pious" believe that they better than others and are directed by their Gods to do things that are very unGodly and hypocritical to any sane and reasonable standard of life!
Many of the foundations of religion were based on the type of lives people had thousands of years ago - however many of those regions are still living in total states of barbarism - those that were able to change with the times advanced and those that did not still remain as they were back then.
That there are arranged marriages today in our society is nothing more than slavery, yet we allow them to happen! I hope that this woman is able to extracate herself from this situation along with her children. These types of ultra orthodox situations are nothingmore than brainwashing of children at an age when they are not able to reason by themselves and then when that are old enough it is too late!
The husband is no different than the Islamists, I hope she wins her custody and that he is not so insane that he will do harm to her and their children Unfortunely Restraining orders are useless.
hollywood zombi: THE ARTICLE MENTIONS SHE IS GETTING THE DIVORCE IN A RABBINIC COURT. SHE ALREADY HAS A RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST HER HUSBAND DELIVERED BY A CIVIL COURT. THE CUSTODY HAS NOT YET BEEN HEARD IN A CIVIL COURT.
Jeff Salvati: She is Hot........ Live and let live, shit happens.
Roberta Arnone: My articulate remarks are being deleted by a malicious misogynist, but considering the nature of this article, I really shouldn't be surprised.
Call Me Crazy: There must be a philistine out there who cannot abide such "articulateness." And you really should work on your self-esteem issues.
John Broyles: Call Me Crazy who has bigger self-esteem issues? The person who speaks their mind or the person who writes anonymous posts?
Roberta Arnone: John Broyles , thanks, John. CMC has been cyber-stalking me for a few months now on here. He gets his jollies trying fruitlessly to knock me down.
Ralph Simico: Does he get to keep the hat?
Danny Rebelo: After reading this article and then reading ALL of the posts on here I checked EVERY CALENDAR in my home to VERIFY that the year is 2012! 4k for a wig huh. I would say to each their own, HOWEVER there ARE limits! This is great READING and educational material if one thinks they are going through a rough time in their lives. I've always said "it could be worse"...:)
Tony Arellano: what a hot jew! - they need to get withthe times! and have their men shave and take a shower too!
Linda Kahler: Why would anyone accept an arranged marriage in this era? Parents can be easily fooled by jerks who flatter them and have good manners. Then when the woman is alone, the devil presents himself.
Aaron K: There's gotta be more to it then she admits, last I checked, the court system is very fair when it comes to divorce, if the judge rules in favor of the husband then it means there's more to this case then the post knows. She's probably mentally unstable and incapable of raising kids, I mean think about it, for a woman to just drop her religion like that one day explains a lot about her, and I'm sure her husband was not abusive, its just a way of her getting people to feel bad for her.
Shani M. Davidowitz: what the heck is this world coming tooo
Raphael Lasry: the woman is crazy and everyone in lkwd knows it. next case please!
Joe Comiskey: criticizing the Jewish religion doesn't make someone an anti Semite.
Jason Argonauts: I'm happy for her, these people live in caves!
Can you blame her? Who would want to be married to that skeeve.
Dennis Broderick: Regardless of how she looks, it should be criminal for any religion to hold someone hostage to that faith and a horrible marriage of abuse if that person changes their outlook. No religion is above the law and no religion should condone or encourage threats, slander or any other means as a way to force a person to stay in a dysfunctional life.
Npc Competitor Vianney Morales: This is entertaining!
Rose Gee: I am surprised that all of you intelligent and college educated folks out there get so excited and believe a story you see published about an ex orthodox woman. I personally do not know pearl reich, but I do know for a fact the courts don't just decide to take away children from their mother without basis. there are alot of civil divorce cases and there are some horrific ones. I have my own situation which I choose not to publicize. I have been to court and there was supposed to be a petition signed against me that I am an unfit mother...not one signature was ever brought before the judge. I didn't need to make a facebook page to blast my childrens father, my reputation, my behavior in front of the judges and my children indicating that they choose to remain with me spoke volumes. I believe that if she is a great mother and the kids choose to be with her, the judge will see that. I don't wish the pain of losing her children on her and I hope if she is found fit, that she will retain custody of them. I also don't believe everything she is saying to be true. none of you do! only she, her husband and god know it all! all of you need to chill, quit judging and stop with anti semitism and hate. on one last note....her walking around with her blonde dyed hair is working against her. she doesn't look very classy. in fact she looks trashy and the childrens school and yeshiva probably have issues with that! and to all of you making assumptions about welfare and taxes....i don't have welfare, I have a job and pay taxes and don't have a 4K wig!
Tresor DeejayTres Joseph: what happen to following your heart? arranged marriages, won't & could never understand it, how can you enter a marriage infront of god if your not in love with each other, its like faking it til you make it kind of thing to me. I am happy shes strong enough to fight for what she knows is right for her. & to her parents, they should be disappointed in themselves for not sticking up for there daughter, there child...smh.
Bruce Markowitz: Wasn't human bondage outlawed by Lincoln?
Meyson Burgos: Judith Ross Graeber your community IS CRAZY WE ARE IN 2012 wake up Please no need to abuse this sexy lady
Matt Quattrochi: throw the jew down the wellll.
Carlos Zion: Sounds like she had a difficult time breaking free from an abusive spouse.be sure to ask for spousal support and child support.keeps him busy.
Steve Buono: Human beings consist of two aspects, internal and external, or spiritual and physical, there are also two aspects of knowledge, internal and external, and two aspects of ignorance, internal and external. Religion and Science have been the methods of searching for these two aspects of truth, in order to overcome the two aspects of ignorance and restore the two aspects of knowledge. Those of us who study the internal are not nuts, but consider the incorporeal essential to true contentment. Not all Religion is Truth, however; and intuition and rational deduction, through earnest consultation with God, can assist in our direction. Ms. Riech, for the kids sake...move out and move up!
Michael Wechsler: This is a #1 news story? Nothing else going on? Isn't Jeremy Lin playing tonight? Oh... "Hasid Hottie" is the headline. Average looking women wouldn't have made the headline.
Robert Johnson: This type of unnatural thinking which is common to Judaism, Christianity and Islam helps to make the point that Thomas Paine made in his important book on God, religion, Deism, etc., The Age of Reason, The Complete Edition. And that point is that we need a revolution in religion based on our gift from God of reason and on Deism.
Progress! Bob Johnson
Carlos Zion: You'll need half the assets to survive in todays difficult economic enviroment.you need to go out and enjoy the arts and music.get away from the controlling monster.
Alan Cohen: get rid of the abusive bum and if your father still wants you abused then tough love say goodbye to him as well---you can live a normal life.
psychiatrist and psychologist are the major problem, its all opinion based on there own thoughts which provide no clinical evidence of any condition or disease, as always the sheeple listen and follow the wrong messenger, if this girl was abused she should leave, common sense tells us what to do, don't need a pscyho for that.
