D., who was released from prison this week, was incarcerated in one cell with six other girls; now she’s dreaming about the boy she met for a moment in the prisoners van.19:00 29.04.16 | 2 comments
You see the commandments regarding the care that must be taken toward the widow, the orphan and the stranger, for this rabbi, pertain only to Jews. He does not feel that he has any moral obligation to this riffraff. His overriding moral concern is purity of the race, not mingling with the foreigners who might lead astray the daughts and sons of Israel to a different code of morlaity; one where there is nodistinction between the Jew and non-Jew. A society is to be judge not by how they treat those who are like them in ethnicity or belief but those who are different. This Yishai may take scrupulous care in checking his caulifolower and rasberries, his wife might be properly covered and properly mikvaed, but these foreigners who do his menail work for his tribe must be banished, as sources of impurity.
