“We have all become entrenched in our polarized positions. We surround ourselves with those who share our views, and we are all too ready to delegitimize those who hold a divergent position. It is incumbent upon us to speak out for the values that are fundamental to our beliefs, and it behooves us to recognize that there are others who cherish divergent views.”

~ Rabbi Yael Romer
