Pathways, not Traps

The Haskalah is not something to be rejected or destroyed. Not only is faith redefined better than faith lost: it is a challenge to the observant to reach out, to understand, and to help build pathways for return.

It serves no-one to make the progression to greater observance harder than the Ba’al T’shuvah’s own heart makes it. And yet, by defining ourselves in silos, we create nothing more than traps for the soul.
