Daniel In The Lions’ Den

JewishPress Logo

The Mishna in Avos tells us, “In a place where there is no man, strive to be a man” (2:6). Daniel, barely more than a boy, stood up and was a man in a place where no one else would stand up. I am proud of him, not only because of my position as international director of NCSY but as a member of the Jewish people.

Abraham stood up for God because he knew it was true. Wendell Phillips stood up for freedom because he knew it was just. History has proven them correct. Likewise, young Daniel stood up for Israel because it was the right thing to do. Hopefully it won’t take as long for his position to be vindicated.
