I asked R. Aaron Levine for his view on the Living Wage. He responded that his view has not changed and that he is working on a paper to detail his objections to the proposal.
The Torah in Motion discussion between R. Barry Freundel, R. Yitzchok Adlerstein and R. Seth Farber about the recent conversion controversy is now available for purchase (link - "The Conversion Crisis - Panel"). I am almost done listening to it and have found it extremely helpful in understanding the different views. I think R. Freundel represents my view -- uncomfortable with R. Druckman's approach but shocked at his being totally dismissed and deemed invalid as a judge. But both R. Adlerstein and R. Farber present their views eloquently.
