About OTD Stories

This blog was inspired by Daas Hedyot’s Better Know a Kofer series, which was in turn inspired by Dov Bear’s series called Better Know a Blogger.

The aim of the blog is very much like Daas Hedyot’s goals: It is to put the record straight when it comes to the reasons why people go Off the Derech (‘stray from the path’). But it also serves to inspire people who think they may be on their own and/or think it is impossible to go your own way in life. Or who think that the situation won’t improve (see also the It Gets Besser initiative).

You are not alone. You have the right to define your own derech. And, yes, it often does get better.
