Judaism is an intellectually based religion, and the single most important theme is that of study.
We live in a world where finding fault in others seems to be the favorite blood sport. It has long been the basis of political campaign strategy. It is the theme of much television programming across the world. It sells newspapers. Whenever we meet anyone, our first, almost unconscious reaction may be to look for imperfections.
It chills my blood to hear the blest Supreme Rudely appealed to on each trifling theme.
