Rabbi Scott's blog... Rorschach Test

“When I was a professor at a right-leaning college, I was accused of being a self-hating leftist Jew.  Now that I am a professor at a left-leaning college, I am accused of being a Zionist conspirator.”  These words from our fantastic Scholar in Residence last weekend, Dr. Marc Dollinger, have rung in my ears ever since I heard them articulated. 

For so much of our modern history, Jews and Judaism have served as the proverbial racial/ethnic “Rorschach test” for the world.
