    The Reform movment introduced the leveling aspect to Judaism. Everyone should be equal, with justice for all. The Torah does not talk about this. The opposite is true. Each have their own seperate and important roles to play. If Zionism can be intupreted as ones love for Israel with the expression of ones desire to live in Israel, the mention of justice by Sheleg is misplaced in regard to divisions amongst Jews as Sheleg knows that Orthodox Judaism cannot and will never find a compromise on converstion with the Reform movements approach to it, and the intellectuals in the Reform movement should have the capacity to understand this. But they don't. The only justice that should be talked about is that Jews have a right to live in their historic homeland. For some Jews not to accept some aspects of what is written in the Torah is problematic but whatever approach is taken to this it should not fall under the umbrella of collective justice. Individual repsonsibilty is called for here.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
