Cross References

Both Lammpost & Avraham pick up on various thoughts of mine. While Lamm discusses kiruv, Avraham blogs about the role of Rabbi Soloveitchik in Modern Orthodox communities. What they both share in common, though, is an ability to engage in religious activies while being aware of the greater sociological, psychological, and religious dimensions of our activities. Lamm is not saying not to mekareiv (bring close)those distant from Judaism. Nor is AB saying not to learn the writings of RYBS. Rather, they are arguing that we can engage in these activities, as communities and as individuals, while being self-aware off their greater implications.
