It’s nice to see the Jewish Journal publish a piece about Natalie’s recent “anti” Jewish comments. No knee jerking. Engagement of reasoning. Wow.
The integration of Holocaust education into Jewish education requires a balancing of competing imperatives: conveying the enormity and uniqueness of the Shoah without alienating the very audiences we most need to reach. Natalie Portman should be commended, not criticized, for making the need for such a proportionate approach a topic of discussion.
Thanks to Belerofonte for the find.
