In the show today, I offer some reflections about a recent study that showed only 10% of parents would approve of their children marrying someone blind. But the meat of the show is about how the theatrics of both sides regarding the Women of the Wall can be handled in a very different way- by both sides talking TO each other instead of throwing things and shouting nasty epithets AT each other. How do we know that talking can bring change where the status quo can't? I end the show looking at two people who now lecture around the world about the power of engaging with those who could easily be your enemy. Big deal, right? Two psychologists or social workers? No. One is a woman whose father was killed by a bomb in a building set by the IRA, the other is the man who planted the bomb that killed her father. If THEY can achieve some Shalom, it's possible in other arenas too.
