  Great Article
 
This article is spot on and very relevant. I'm sure you are aware that there is a lot of guilt on both sides. The secular Jews speak very negatively of the Orthodoxy, and opinions like those of the two fellows you mentioned might be to blame for this. In response to the other comment titled "But...," since the Rabbi didn't mention the names of the two individuals, this does not constitute as publicly embarrassing someone.

  But....
 
But Rabbi...aren't we taught that embarrassing someone in public is akin to murdering them?

  Perfect for the 3 Weeks and beyond
 
I always fantasize about a Utopian Jewish country. I hope to live to see it. If not, I'll continue doing my little bit of loving every Jew even those who pain me the most.

  If words could kill directly...
 
RLB: Thanks so much for clarifying what "sinath chinam" is. The whole thing seems more like an excuse to keep the galuth going because the term so easily rolls off the tongue -- but who knows how to keep from engaging in it? This piece points to something we can take to heart: Sinath chinam leads to murder among Jews, whether with words or more solid weaponry.
