The test for all Jews - both observant and "secular" - is whether there is a belief in and a commitment to "tikun olam" - the healing of this broken, sad and tragic world, without regard to the nationality, religion, or culture of the receiver. Do Jews aspire to moral leadership? Do they truly believe their faith and culture bind them to this moral imperative? Or have the Jewish people become as so many others - just another selfish nation, with little or no regard for the suffering of humanity as a whole? Some questions to consider carefully. It matters little whether the world wishes to hold Jews to a "higher standard". What really matters is whether the Jews themselves do so.
