The topic of last week's Livingston's World on Jnet radio caused a lot of consternation. Many believe that Scientology is sinister, and that it is filled with (as one listener put it) 'nutters' and should be avoided at all costs. So why do so many, including Jews, join their ranks?
Sharon Cohen is a nice Jewish girl from Manchester. She came from a traditional Jewish home where shabbos was celebrated with candle lights and kiddush on a Friday. But she was shy and this was exacerbated by a stutter. She found it hard to communicate with her peers, and had no-one to turn to for guidance.
