Ethics: The Politics of Compromise

By Ethan Felson

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2012

In the Jewish community, like in politics, a new partisanship is emerging. Large issues are acted out on a small scale. This becomes problematic when the impact of the issues is over-exaggerated and the opportunity for compromise disappears. In order to create room for compromise, each side must encounter and acknowledge the views of the other. Opposing groups must also recognize that, although they disagree, their opponents care deeply about the issues at hand.
