The Imaginative Power of Sacrifice

By Leon A. Morris

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2008

This piece presents an analysis of a debate between Rav Gidel and Rabbi Yochanan on what constitutes sacrificial service in their time and what it means to the present day. The piece highlights that modernity has focused on replacing words as a replacement for sacrifice but it may be necessary to consider claiming areas such prayer and study as substitutes for sacrificial service.
