“As the father of a daughter who is near the age that many of these girls are sold, and as a rabbi who works on the difficult issue of educating young men, I had to come to terms with the reality that Israeli sex traffickers have enslaved close to 4,000 minors and the police have done relatively little to stop it. And as I read more about the growth of the sex trade industry, I became increasingly convinced that this is one issue that men should be standing up for. Certainly we should be standing up because we are generally compassionate and decent beings and we believe that these women and girls are victims of a horrific form of indignity. But we should also be standing up because of the corrosive effect that the rising success of the global sex trafficking business is having on men.”
