freedom of expression

Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie, in his rebuttal to David Brooke’s New York Times piece, eloquently points out that while there is will always be hate, racism and disagreements “[t]he protections enjoyed are considerable and must be defended at all costs” and that we should remember that our “most important task” should be to oppose those offensive voices and create walls against such hate.

Today, as a woman and an artist, I am blessed to freely express my views through a creative voice. I honor those who have lost their lives working to entertain us through thought provoking, intellectual exposition. Whether we agree with one another, or not, it is my hope that this intolerance will one day be a quizzical afterthought that is painted across the sky and etched upon the earth.
