    That some Jews in the late eighteenth century that thoutht "if" they looked at Judaism as an historic community with it's ethnic flolkways, as Herder postudlated for the "nations of Europe", they would be better off. I fear that assumption didn't work for Jews as we learned in the Shoah. Rabbi Kook, the first Chief Rabbii, said that you can spell "history" in Hebrew witha "tet" or a "tav". with a "tet' it spells Hysteria, with a "tav" it connotes values that are mostly hidden frlom us. Free thinking leads us to assimilation and confusion. There is quite enough free thinking in our Sources, if you look for it, but, fear once you put Judaism on the chopping block of history, it will become, as they say in the movies," history".
