Judaism teaches us…
Pruzansky: that all human beings are created in the image of God, but that doesn’t mean we are all obligated in the identical divine service or that all roads lead to the same destination. It does mean that our human identity, capacity to think and make free-willed choices is divine – and the greatest challenge of our lives is to ascertain God’s will and surrender to it.
Adlerstein: first how to be a mensch, and then how to be holy (Kuzari).
Shafran: that we exist not for ourselves alone but for others, and the Other.
My dream for the Jewish people…
Pruzansky: is a long era of peace and quiet, so we can behold the complete implementation of the Torah in modern life, a respite from our enemies, and a chance to sit and learn Torah. That is to say, the arrival of Mashiach.
Adlerstein: is to value and understand Torah sufficiently to be able to take it on the road to the rest of mankind.
Shafran: is that it be entirely united by the grand unifier that created Klal Yisrael in the first place, at the foot of Har Sinai, 3,326 years ago.
