Breaking the American Jewish silence over the Gaza conflict
Israel’s moral choices in the conflict are harrowing but non-negotiable: The right to defense - but not to vengeance, the moral responsibility to protect Israel’s citizens - and Gaza’s civilians, and to grieve for them all.
American Jews can be a loud tribe, declaiming noisily about what we endorse or condemn, what we know and what we think we know. Those in my line of work – the community rabbinate – may be especially prone such a pattern.
