    There is a kind of Jew that doesn’t believe the world was created in seven days. There is a kind of Jew that has not feared to taste from the tree of knowledge. There is a kind of Jew that doesn’t destroy the trees of the neighbors or take their lands and waters to dream biblically. There is a kind of Jew that doesn’t go dancing around the tombs of ancestors. There is a kind of Jew that thinks that a rabbi is no more and no less than a human being. There is a kind of Jew that doesn’t give orders to women to be displaced to the second floor, or to the other sidewalk, or to the back of the bus. There is a kind of Jew that doesn’t pursue room maids in expensive hotels or secretaries in State offices. There is a kind of Jew that knows what it is the meaning of the word oligarch and doesn’t need to live in towers, to swim in swimming pools of their own, to travel in shining cars, private planes and white yachts, escorted by guardians armed to the teeth. There is a kind of Jew unable to get money for dental care. There is a kind of Jew that doesn’t tread on red carpets, and doesn’t hire the lobby of the Knesset for their children wedding. There is a kind of Jew that doesn’t participate in fundamentalist tea parties. There is a kind of Jew that wants to live in a house of his or her own, without paying mortgage until the day of death. There is a kind of Jew that believes in social justice and not at all in charity. There is a kind of Jew that understands that many people, and not only the Jews, have a right to a National Home. There is a kind of Jew convinced that the goim are people like him or her. There is a kind of Jew that feels himself or herself a part of the mankind.
