Topic

Building Civil Dialogue in a Fragmented World: Arguments for the Sake of Heaven
Many of us experience our civil relationships as in crisis: the seemingly impassible American political divide, the growing disconnect between diaspora and Israeli Jews, and the ironic loneliness of a hyper-connected social media world. The Jewish tradition of makhloket leshem shamayim, arguments for the sake of heaven, gives us a tool for healing as well as a lens through which to understand more deeply the many issues dividing us today.
