Judaism Values Limits

“There is nothing in Judaism of nostalgia for the pre-technological simplicities of a mythical past, paradise lost, a remembered Eden. But even a faith as focused on this world as Judaism, insists on limits. There are times and places – the Sabbath, festivals, daily prayer, the home, the school, the house of study – into which the market and its siren voice may not intrude.”
