The reason I clicked was that I noticed the name and face of Tal Becker, a fellow at of the Shalom Hartman Institute, who I heard speak for the first time at a symposium just a few short weeks ago (turns out that we are neighbors as well). He is a pretty good orator and has a good sense of the key issues facing Israel and Judaism today. His present piece he writes about "Taking God (a little More) Seriously".
Near the end of his essay he states:
Imagine if this were the way religion and religious leaders were recognized in the public arena. Imagine if bringing God into the public square meant a supreme concern for the welfare of the collective, rather than the restricted needs of separate religious communities.
