Disputes that Unite

By David Kraemer

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, December 12, 1997

Jewish debate is famous for its variety of viewpoints. Although this seems to be a sign of disunity, their presence indicates tolerance and hence cohesion. This conclusion comes from rabbinic Judaism's dialogues; the rabbis knew that the alternative to tolerance for cohesion's sake was the disappearance of Jews.
