Interest in the blog shot up following its report on allegations of sexual abuse cover up

If You Tickle Us is an [1] UK Orthodox Jewish blog which mainly covers issues concerning the Haredi communities of Stamford Hill and Golders Green.[2]


The blog's popularity flourished following allegations of a cover-up by the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations of sexual abuse committed by one of its prominent rabbis.[3] The blog provided a regular update of the developing scandal used by a number of media sources, such as the Jewish Chronicle[4] and the Times of Israel.[5]

If You Tickle Us made headlines again after a high court decision that Google must provide one Rabbi Aaron Halpern, with the identifying details such as the IP address of the blogger behind the blog If You Tickle Us.[6]
