Is the Regulation Law an historical achievement? Or is it a farce? My head says it is a major achievement. My heart, however, is telling me just the opposite.
Is there anything we can learn from Laban? The very thought of it seems absurd! Yet, for many in our community, there are lessons – important lessons – that we can learn from him.
