The Significance of Faigy Mayer’s Suicide

What statement, if any, does Faigy Mayer’s suicide make?  I originally learned to appreciate the depth of these conflicts through the writings of Nathan Englander.   It takes courage to address many of these issues.  Sometimes the discussion ensues through footsteps.

The very public way in which Faigy Mayer committed suicide was the antitheses of footsteps.  It was a running jump.  A leap of faith, or perhaps a leap away from faith.
