A lot of what you say about avocados is an afront to Orthodox Judaism. How can you, a well-regarded author and American-born Jew, tell innocent children, many of whom are reading you in yeshiva, that it’s okay to do this and that with avocados and not to prepare it in the kosher fashion as suggested by Moses, Rabbi Simcha Zissel Ziv, Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler, and many others?? A chaleyre!

Daniel replies:

Practically everything I do is an affront to Orthodox Judaism. But without horrible examples like me, how would you instruct the young?
