Daniel Finkelstein is a Jewish former executive editor of The Times – the paper to which I subscribe – and remains a weekly columnist with the paper, and an associate editor. He’s also a Conservative peer.
The Jewish Chronicle has just published a piece by him. He writes:
I believe that tradition is important and have a predisposition towards existing institutions and practices.
But I believe that we pray and we think in order to understand. And from that understanding we realise when we need to change [my emphasis]. This is true in politics and as a Jew.
I shall seek a meeting with him on the subject of male circumcision.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
