See for example
NYT: A Rabbi Keeps a Couple Company
And what about this case...
My approach is..
I have no clue how to best respond to a family in conflict
Rather let's realize that the Torah can be politically incorrect on many issues EG
4 Certain Abortion cases - in either direction
5 Several cases involving Sacrificing an individual to save many.
6. Saving oneself first over saving others
That said - somehow there must be a compassionate way to respond - And I just don't think we need to sell the Torah's position short But, I suspect Dr. Prager did.
