Micah Goodman’s Catch-67: Taking a Talmudic Approach to Discussing Israel
January 31, 2021
Jewish tradition teaches us that debate is sacred and the Talmud demonstrates that we should study views that were not adopted as halacha (Jewish law). To apply this concept to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Micah Goodman models “radical listening” by presenting the best arguments of both the Israeli right and the left regarding the conflict.
