God and Mammon

By Jgordon, October 26, 2009

Further to the news that Rabbi Nathan Asmoucha has been placed in a situation where he has stood down after a row over his part in a demonstration against the role of banks in the financial crisis. I recognise he failed to gain permission for his participation in a political campaign. If we Jews had to wait for permission to embark on politically motivated activity we would have to sit on our hands for an inordinately long time. Indeed, we might still be waiting to enter Eretz Yisroel.
