Nishma, Sh'ma April 2010

By Brigitte Dayan, Sean R. Singer, Doug Kahn, David Booth

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, April 2010

Kahn, Dayan, Singer, and Booth respond to the Talmudic text "These and these are the words of the living God, but the halakhah follows the school of Hillel." Their responses discuss the balance between strict truth and other values; the value of humility and respect in our response to competing views; the distinction between modesty and civility; and the importance of listening.
