Building Standards

“A Jewish community should build its standards around its aspirations, holding out to its members the challenge of eternal ideas rather than an ever-changing set of accommodations to passing fashion, moral, spiritual or intellectual. It therefore matters that it embodies an institutional expression of humility in the face of God and reverence for the traditions of its ancestors, never losing its sense of infinity in the midst of space or of eternity in the flux of time.”
