So, here’s the stuff my friends have been thinking about recently. It’ll do you good to read it.
Shaul Magid has been thinking about Zalman Shachter Shalomi.
Nathaniel Berman has been thinking about the Levy commission and settlements. He has also been thinking about the crisis of Israel’s legitimacy.
Gershom Gorenbeg has thinking about the founding values of the State of Israel.
Yehudah Mirsky has been thinking about doing social justice (and he gives my book a nice shout out).

One Response to “Roundup”

  1. Thanks for these links. I particularly enjoyed Shaul’s review of Reb Zalman’s book; I reviewed it for the Forward but his review is far more in-depth than mine was, and I really like his points about Jewish Renewal toward the end.

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
