Description

North Korea has said it is entering a "state of war" with South Korea in the latest series of threats against its neighbor and the United States. Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, President of Clal-The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership questions the relationship between pursuing peace and pacifism. “I think it’s possible for people to really maintain a steadfast commitment to peace while accepting there are circumstances under which force may actually be necessary,” Hirschfield said. Perhaps faith, he says, can provide a new way to look at the situation.
