Really find this organizations exploiting the untimely death of their son at 13 (who would be about 24 now if not murdered) for their own belief system and think it is reprehensible. The only proper way of closure is justice for those who perpetuated these acts that this doesn't happen to others yet this organization tries to make it like a normal part of life to just laugh and get over which is really trivializing this horrible crime. Their son was never able to get married and have children (and at 13 just hit puberty) and be an adult and any normal parent would not want to have comedy and keep their child a perpetual 13 year old for their own causes. What does woman retreats, and women healing have to do with their son being murdered at 13 as it is suggesting men don't care which if that is the case your grief WOULD BE less with such a twisted attitude which really is what I sense here. Exploited their son due to their own twisted views about men that the husband and wife share for their own selfish gain.

All I can say is I wouldn't want my untimely death to be exploited for causes like this and have fun at my untimely death of never becoming an adult. I wouldn't want my father making $80,000 a year because I died unnaturally at the age of 13 which is exactly the case here of Seth Mandell making 80,000 a year. This isn't that far off from terrorists who use their son's deaths for their own causes and it even encourages parents to be neglectful of their sons as after all you can use their death to start a 401(C) and be a big player in psychological circles.

I feel groups like this make some Jews to be part of a death cult and is polluting the land of Israel with this kind of mentality. That is how I feel. Using their son's death to push their own psychological ideas and other causes
