Taking Hillel and History to Heart

By Abraham H. Foxman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2008

In this column, part of the Sigi Ziering series on the ethics of leadership, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League reflects on speaking out about issues versus being silent. He concludes that we do not have the luxury to be silent when Jews are in jeopardy, when the State of Israel is threatened, when our democratic values and institutions are attacked and when others are in peril, simply because they are "others.
