Personal Reflections: Jane Eisner

By Jane Eisner

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, April 2010

Eisner writes about dissent in the context of censorship in the art world. Though lines must be drawn, the Jewish institutional world ought not to be afraid of free speech, and it should have the confidence and courage to allow dissenting voices to be heard and provocative issues to be raised. The fear that this will somehow embolden Israel's enemies has to be tempered by the knowledge that our survival depends upon embracing creativity and dissent, not censoring it.
