Confronting Confrontation II

It is definitely worth reading the singular R. Shalom Carmy's essay on Confrontation.


It should be evident by now that I find perspicuous the Rav's emphasis on the difficulty of communicating intimate religious insight and that I don't consider developments in the Roman Catholic or any other church to have superseded his ruling. However, because our subject is not as unambiguous as the kashrut of fish, it may be misleading to apply the Rav's categories in a mechanical way... Guidelines are no substitute for common sense, dignity and humility.
