Torah scholars increase peace


"True peace will come to the world only through an embrace of the value of increasing peace, when all sides and all opinions will be viewed, and it will be clarified that each has a place, according to its value, place and content…

"This is how Torah scholars increase peace [as pledged in Berachot 64a]. When they expand and explain and produce new words of wisdom, from different points of view, with a variety and even contradiction of content, thus they increase peace."

(Rav Avraham Yitzchak haKohen Kook, Olat Re'iyyah I pg. 330 [standard Mossad haRav Kook edition])

Have a great day,
