Huffington Post: We Must Move Beyond Rhetoric To Solve The Refugee Crisis

The Challenge of the Syrian Refugees is a real one. On one hand, there is legitimate concern that within their midst are people with malevolent intent. On the other hand, they are in need and how can we, a people defined by chesed, not respond with caring. The situation presents a real dilemma.

See further on this in my latest Huffington Post blog: We Must Move Beyond Rhetoric To Solve The Refugee Crisis.

My original title for the post, btw, was 'The Syrian Refugees: Are We Finally Beyond the Rhetoric on Both Sides?' but it was changed by the editors.

Please feel free to comment here or there.

I am proud that our Synagogue, Beth Jacob, is sponsoring a family. We have every confidence that the screening process will identify any potential problems.
