Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

Week after week, the letters to the editor are replete with letters that (for the most part) present the case for one side or the other of the political spectrum with utter and simplistic confidence. Many times they even demonize the other side as somehow being bereft of any value. While this is a sad microcosm of the current state of political discourse in our social media/cable news, echo chamber society, we should strive for better. Our community views itself as the disciples of the Rav, z’’l; Rav Aharon Lichtenstein, z”l; and Rabbi Lord Sacks, z”l, all of whom were models of nuanced thinking. Let’s please all try to raise the level of our discussions to be more substantive than CNN and Fox News chyrons.
