Not What You Say, but How You Say It

By David Raab

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, September 29, 1995

David Raab discusses the role of religion in government and the need for the Israeli government to be more accommodating to the religious Jews in the Israeli army. He is also concerned about the use of halakhah (Jewish law) as a political weapon, when it is used to seek control, not just influence, over the political agenda. Raab believes that Israel needs to recognize the importance of inner dialogue to avoid an internecine conflict.
