‘In 5776, Israel must adopt a more tolerant form of Judaism’

The Jewish year 5775 was not one of particular tranquility for the State of Israel or its citizens, with a wave of terrorist attacks in Jerusalem, including the brutal slaughter of men at prayer in a synagogue, an intemperate general election, and heightened concerns over the accord between Iran and the leading international powers regarding Tehran’s nuclear program.

And at the end of the year, just several weeks ago, the nation was convulsed by the murder of Shira Banki in the Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade, and the attack in the Palestinian village of Duma, most likely by Jewish extremists, in which three members of the Dawabsha family were murdered and a fourth was severely injured.

Rosh Hashana is traditionally a time of personal introspection.
