Our scientific age demands that we provide definitions, measurements, and statistics in order to be taken seriously. Yet most of the important things in life cannot be precisely defined or measured. Can we define or measure love, beauty, friendship, or decency, for example?

Many Jews think that Judaism's way of "repairing the world" is to be politically active and take what they consider to be correct positions on social issues. A lifetime of studying and teaching Judaism has led me to a different conclusion. As a general rule, the Jewish way to repair the world is to engage first and foremost in repairing one's own character and doing good on an individual basis. An excellent place to begin is by preserving the dignity of other human beings, even those one opposes politically. That is much harder, but usually much more beneficial to the world, than engaging in political activism.
I realized that Abraham and Moses both have prolonged arguments with God, and not only doesn't God mind, He seems to welcome them. In fact, the name He gives Jacob and His Chosen People is "Israel," which literally means "Struggle with God."... does anyone read the stories of Abraham and Moses arguing with God and assume that God loses His authority? Of course not. Parents who allow their child to argue with them retain (and even enhance) their authority, are more likely to be loved, and even more important, guarantee that the child will continue to talk to them. A child who is always forbidden to argue with a parent will eventually stop communicating.
