Does Religion Make Things Better?

By Nosson Scherman

Eugene Borowitz, October 2, 1992

Nosson Scherman argues that Orthodox Judaism does make things better because religion insists that there are eternal codes of morality and ethics. He states that Orthodox Jews engage in charitable and noble activities because they are religiously obligated and in doing so they become warmer, kinder people.
