A Theology of Dialogue

By Elyse D. Frishman

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, February 4, 1994

Jewish identity stems from the mitzvot of the Torah, but it is interesting to note how little the verb "command" is used in the Torah. Rather, God speaks or says what God wants to have happen, like parents giving chores to their children. When Jews can approach mitzvot with flexibility of execution, the relationship with God is more meaningful and more likely to continue.
