...making the sole point that no consensus exists over what our values are. With such a wide political and religious spectrum, how could there be ? This should have been the starting point for any argument on an otherwise very interesting question. The answer to any set of Jewish values can only lie in the Torah and Halakha really, for historically, these were religious and moral standards all Jews had in common. Yet these are rules-based rather than principle-based codes, so implying any values here is in itself a subjective exercise. Even if we do, it remains arguable whether the resultant values are indeed Jewish, ie genuinely represented by our religion for the first time. Now there's limited space in an article, but it should have at least acknowledged that with all likelihood, there is no such thing as genuinely Jewish values. We may have adopted many principles as as one civilised people from another, but we have invented really none of them. Disappointing.
