Guiding Principles for the Synagogue Community: Tzadikim: Disagree Respectfully with Rabbi Aryeh Azriel


Beit Hillel and Beit Shammai were both proficient in the law, but Beit Hillel prevailed in nearly every debate because, according to the Talmud, they were more respectful in argument. Beit Hillel would speak gently, praise Beit Shammai’s acumen, and acknowledge that, although they disagreed with Beit Shammai’s conclusions, there was truth to be learned from what they had to say. As friends and fellow congregants, we will often
disagree, but when we do we must, like Beit Hillel, be kind and respectful to those on the other side.
