In Support of Avner Shalev and Yad Vashem; In Support of the Jewish People
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

Shalev's articulate video response to anti-Zionist graffiti points to an urgent crisis for the Jewish People: extremism is beginning to define every conversation. The graffiti was (presumably) written by Ultra-Orthodox anti-Zionists. It is easy to begin using extreme language in response. But Shalev points to what the graffiti is really attacking: open discourse and respectful pluralism. May the legacy of the Six Million not be degraded by extremism within the Jewish People.
