Being sensitive is a good thing. Well, to a point. When sensitivity goes too far, though, it can enter silly or even slander territory. Some examples are in my Ami column of last week, which you can read at:
I was the guest on a Tablet Magazine podcast last week, concerning the open letter that I and others issued a few weeks ago about Jews, political rhetoric and partisanship. You can listen to it at: https://www.tabletmag.com/podcasts/take-one/eruvin-17
And finally, the organization for which I have proudly worked for more than a quarter century, Agudath Israel of America, is currently conducting a fundraising campaign. I have been amazed at how hard and effectively my Agudah colleagues have worked over the past challenging months — as they have over the years.
Please consider making a donation toward keeping the Agudah going. Just click on “donate” at the bottom of the page at the website below. And if you include a short note in the designated “message or dedication” box about how you heard about the campaign, I will be most honored:
Thank you and have a wonderful week!
