Israeli rabbi denounces verbal violence of fellow rabbi

The atrocities of the past few days have bred verbal atrocities. A quick look at Facebook confirms that. It’s good to see one of Israel’s leading lights, Rabbi Michael Melchior, weigh in on the side of reason:

Melchior took a shot at politics, forming a political party and movement representing moderate Orthodox Jews who favor a political settlement based on compromises with the Palestinians. Unfortunately…besides my son and me, there were not enough of them to make the party a success, and there was no indication that Palestinians were willing to compromise on anything. That leaves us out there…but it’s good to see that Melchior is still fighting the good fight.
