Jews would be the most populous group on Earth today if our numbers when we left Egypt more than 3,000 years ago had been allowed to grow in a natural, unimpeded way. But we know from the history of massacres and laws against our people that the rate of Jewish population growth has been anything but natural. How have we survived so many enemies over so many years? How can we have any hope for the future?

Title: There Are No Basketball Courts In Heaven

Posted on: May 5th, 2010

SectionsBooks

Rabbi Dovid Landesman jokes that one of his former students used to refer to him as General Eclectic because he could never safely predict how he would come down on various issues. Another talmid reminds me that the rabbi was sometimes referred to as the "adderaba" (Aramaic for "on the contrary") because he could usually be counted upon to present a viewpoint that never feared challenging the establishment. The most cogent appreciation, however, is that offered by a ninth grader who, after listening to a talk on parashat hashavua, approached him and said, "Rebbi, I don't like the way you speak!" Somewhat taken aback, Rabbi Landesman asked him to explain his criticism. The student replied, "You always want us to think!"
