A recent Lookjed discussion entitled "A controversial commencement address" touched on Michael Chabon's critique of tradtional Jewish values at the recent HUC graduation ceremony. Lookjed readers may be interested in this response by Rabbi David Wolkenfeld and Rabbi Chaim Strauchler - [www.commentarymagazine.com]

An excerpt:
<<
In a 1963 article in this magazine called “Writing About Jews,” Philip Roth defended his work from the sermonic attacks of rabbis who claimed that his fiction was not good for the Jews. In a twist of fate, we must now defend our work as rabbis from the attacks of an acclaimed American Jewish writer who decries rabbis’ efforts to preserve Jewish peoplehood.
