Written by Rabbi Barbara Borts

DISSENSION – 1) disagreement among those expected to co-operate. 2) a conflict of people's opinions or actions or characters

This is one of the topics of the day here in the UK, what with the appearance of two separate groups of Jews who have marked their disagreement with some of the mainstream views about Israel.  How has the establishment handled this? In some cases,  with dignity, and in other cases, with a great deal of angst, or disapprobation, or angry disdain. In some cases, the right to dissent has been called into question.

The views expressed in this D’var Torah do not necessarily reflect the position of Leo Baeck College.
