Our Conversation On Leadership Continues...

"Certain issues are indeed a 10; and we rely on the daas Torah of our gedolim to guide us as to which they are. But in all other non-essential matters, we should practice the concept of darchei noam, 'paths of pleasantness,' and be sensitive to the wants and needs of others outside our community. Keep in mind that no one was ever brought closer to Hashem by force. And even if we don't practice tolerance for its own sake, we ought to do so strictly for pragmatic reasons."

Did Chabakuk Elisha say this about leadership? No, it was someone else.

Thinks for bringing Rabbi Horowitz's piece to my attention - he's right on the money! He's a voice in the wilderness.
