Judaism is a conversation– sometimes mundane, sometimes sacred, sometimes calm, sometimes agitated, sometimes harmonious, sometimes discordant. I wish more Jews and more people generally understood how important their voices are to the conversation that is Judaism. That’s why I wholeheartedly embrace the message in this piece written by Rabbi Rick Jacobs for the Washington Post entitled, “Go ahead and debate the Middle East at your Passover Seder.”

Even if we can’t agree on the policy recommendations, the right path of action, or the future of the Jewish people, I believe we can agree that Judaism is a conversation and that we have the right and responsibility to be active and informed participants.
