Mrs. Emma Katz-They Say, and We Say: Managing Conflicting Messages About our Values
In the past we held the high ground on values, now everyone’s values exclude all others. Purim was the first time this type of attack on our values occurred. We accept our history; torah values will take us forward.
Dr. Malka Simkovich-How did the Rabbis Revolutionize Love?
