An Imperfect Solution

“Secular and liberal Jews are part of the covenant, participants in Judaism’s bonds of collective responsibility, to be related to with love, dignity, and respect. This offends the modern self, which demands to be respected not for what it is but for what it believes and does. It is, in terms of modern consciousness, an imperfect solution. But perfect solutions are not to be found this side of the messianic time.”
