Nishma, Sh'ma December 2002

By David Kraemer, Debbie Kram, Avis D. Miller, Abra Pollack

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2002

Kraemer, Pollack, Kram, and Miller respond to a text from the Mishnah in which Sages are exhorted to be careful with their words, lest their students blaspheme the name of heaven. Their responses discuss not only the need for transmitting correct ideas but also the way in which one speaks; the tension between exposing students to the full glory of Jewish thought and praxis while holding intact spiritual and intellectual integrity; the responsibility of American Jews to heed the words of their leaders carefully, even as American Jewish leaders must carefully choose those words; and the link between scholars and parents as constant role models.
