"We are closer to G-d when we are asking the questions, than when we think we have the answers" Heschel

Fear No Question

I once heard a great Jewish sage quoted as saying there are no heretical questions. This is the theme of my blog. It is important to point out that while there are no heretical questions there certainly are heretical answers. I would like to use this blog to share some of my own questions and answers which i have found for them.   Sometimes I have no answers and sometime there are no answers - but I will continue to ask and to search.  I seek to empower others to ask and maintain and grow in their commitment to Torah even in the face of the most difficult questions.   What do you think?

  2. How do you define heresy? Who defines heresy, if not you? I would like to see an example of a *just barely* heretical answer that would fake most people out.

    כל הכבוד, nice blog concept.

  3. A very valid question. I do not claim to have a monopoly on what is defined as heresy but I do have teachers with whom I can consult and from whom I have been given a basic direction. I accept that in this forum I will be forced to make the determination based on my own concepts.

  4. There is an old adage that if you keep your mouth closed, no one can know if you are dumb or brilliant. I fear most people do not question because they know the truth and theilimits, and would rather keeps them to themselves.
