My response to a Thanksgiving post a bit back:
1. the opposition IMHO in the orthodox community is meta-hashkafic not micro-halachic (in perhaps a positive way)-how much ger and how much toshav?(mother’s day? Veterans day?)
2.The treatment we’ve gotten (BTW it wasn’t always so great but as Churchill (or Abba Eban )said : The Americans will always do the right thing… after they’ve exhausted all the alternatives.) is a secondary effect of this being a medina shel chesed. We need to be thankful to HKB”H for putting this less than perfect country in the historical position of being a powerful force for good (and especially now work to keep it as such)
KT from a soon to be dual citizen BE”H


What percentage of people would like to know how they are really viewed by others (vs. maintaining their false self-image)? Are we failing (ethically?) by not telling folks if there are negative perceptions about them out there?
