Ariel Chaim ZT’L flies like an angel, 1981.
The Sixth Annual Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture is up and live.
The title of Rabbi Steven Pruzansky’s lecture is: Conformity in Jewish Life: Virtue, Vice or Affectation?
Is conformity a Torah ideal, and should we encourage it in our children and communities ? Or does conformity restrict our creative impulses, diminish our simchat hachaim—joy of life—and potentially impair our service of Hashem ? Is there a value in pretending to conform externally ? This lecture will explore the Torah’s balance between conformity and individuality.
