Text Quotes
Either Jesus is the son of God, or he is not  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) In both Israel and America, Jews have experienced unparalleled freedoms, achieved great economic success, and exercised appropriate degrees of political power  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) If Christians see Mormonism as a dramatic deviation from a millennia-old, biblically-based faith, Jews see Christianity in the same light.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) I continue to dream of a day when my skullcap will not stick out so much  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) As delineated in the biblical book of Leviticus, Israel’s atonement was achieved, year after year, through the sacrifices brought on that day by the high priest.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) When the Temple was destroyed, the Jewish people faced a crisis unlike any other in its history. For centuries, the sacrificial system had served as the primary medium of atonement before the Almighty.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) The election of the Jewish people is the result of God’s falling in love with Abraham and founding a family with him.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) By forbidding Jews to destroy their hair, the Bible warns them away from seeking the siren song of eternal youth. By encouraging Jews to grow beards, it reminds them that they will not be young forever, that they must prepare the ground for those who come after, just as their fathers did for them.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) Rather than forgive, we can wish ill; rather than hope for repentance, we can instead hope that our enemies experience the wrath of God.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) God can desire to enter into a relationship with us; he can be drawn to some aspect of our identity.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) Judaism, I would argue, does demand love for our fellow human beings, but only to an extent. ‘Hate’ is not always synonymous with the terribly sinful.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) We Americans unite faith and freedom in asserting that our liberties are your gift, God, not that of government.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) The giving of the Torah is a story of God seeking to provide humanity with the opportunity to make moral decisions.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) How can finite man commune with an infinite God? To both Christians and Jews, God himself has made that possible by irrupting into the temporal world. To Christians, God became man in the Incarnation; to Jews, the God that spoke out of the fire on Mount Sinai gave his Torah.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) Humanity was created in the image of God; our love is a reflection of his  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) Europe is no longer a Christian continent; few Europeans attend religious services on Sunday, and the European Union recently refused to refer to Europe’s religious heritage in its fledgling constitution.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) Jews focus on the Torah, the embodiment of God’s will; Christians, on an embodied God  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) To the Christian Church, the destruction of the Temple served as an ultimate sign that the Jews were no longer God’s chosen people, divine favor having now been transferred to a newer and better Israel.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) Not only were the Jewish people beloved, but God himself had taken pains to let them know it. Could there be any clearer sign that he continued to believe in their potential, even without the Temple, to achieve forgiveness and ultimately merit the Temple’s rebuilding?  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) While Jews and Christians both agree on many religious issues, we disagree, and believe each other profoundly wrong, about others.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) There is, of course, only one chosen nation. But Abraham Lincoln would call America ‘an almost chosen nation’ because he believed that America had a providential role to play in history, inspired by the example of God’s ancient covenant people.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) The essence of a religion can be discovered by asking its adherents one question: ‘What, to your mind, was the seminal moment in the history of the world?’  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) I do work a lot on arguing that things which people assume are always wrong are not necessarily so and, indeed, can often be right.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) Jews bear children not only because the carnal election of Abraham must continue. For Jews, raising children is essential to living a rounded ethical life.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) Stanley Hauerwas is correct that Judaism insists on the bearing of children because it is essential to Jewish continuity. But to end the matter there is to miss an essential point: if we are to learn to love others, Judaism says, we must begin by loving those who are closest to us.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) We live in an age in which the biblical-moral traditions that have guided us for centuries are increasingly being forgotten.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) Traditional Christians cannot conceive of God as Mormons do: a God who has a wife, who invites other human beings to become gods with him.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) Jews seek to cleave to the will of God as set forth in the Bible and, particularly, the Pentateuch, with its rabbinic commentaries, the Mishnah and Talmud.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) The practice of shaving makes its first appearance in the Bible in connection with the story of Joseph, who as a young man was sold by his brothers into slavery in Egypt, where he was subsequently imprisoned on false charges.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes) To Catholic, Orthodox, and some Protestant Christians, communion involves partaking of the physical real presence of God in the bread and wine of the Eucharist. By contrast, the Torah draws the Jew into engagement with God’s infinite mind. Torah learning is the definitive Jewish mode of communion with God.  (Meir Soloveichik Quotes)
