Just In Time For Summer 2004

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Today, 4 days into the summer of 2004, I received my copy of the Summer 2003 issue of Tradition. Gentlemen, you can do better than this. (I’m referring to timing, not quality.)

Some very good letters. One from R. Gidon Rothstein pointing out that feminist innovators cannot just argue in favor of each new practice but must also take into account the larger trend and to where women’s roles are moving. And the last letter… Well, we all knew it. But finally someone had the guts to say it.

UPDATE (for Menachem):
