The Painful Compromise

Rabbi Morris Panitz

Parshat Re’eh Sermon. Within the story of a technical, 2nd century, out-of-the-box legal maneuver is a much greater lesson about the dangers of a fracturing social reality.  It’s a cautionary tale about what’s at stake when a society is perilously far from its foundational ideals.  A tale, sadly, as modern as it is ancient.
