We must find good in those with whom we disagree

by Charlie Hall

Rabbi Francis Nataf offers an article that all of us who express opinions in public would do well to read.


'The term “culture wars” has been recently popularized with reference to the increasingly polarized political climate in the United States. While this term could also aptly refer to the intensifying struggle within Israeli society, we must be very careful not to import such a cancerous notion with reference to Jews. '

"One can, and perhaps should, find positive motivations in positions with which one most strenuously disagrees."
