Perhaps it is time for us to stop talking about Rabbi Lipman and to start talking about the issues which he has brought to the fore. Perhaps we should begin to acknowledge that core Torah values support his vision for a life of Torah together with serving the nation and earning a living instead of filling our time with personal attacks. And, even more importantly, it is time to declare that these personal attacks themselves fly in the face of the very Torah values which these authors portray themselves as seeking to defend.
