by Rabbi Noah Gradofsky

Rabbi Gradofsky participate in a blogcast about Mesorah (tradition) organized by JOFA.  The full blogcast can be read here.  A JOFA blog post discussing the blogcast titled “Between Text and Culture: A Definition Of Mesorah” by Steve Gotlib can be found here.

As part of the blogcast, Rabbi Gradofsky wrote:

Ultimately, our tradition is about seeking to understand and fulfill God’s will, and if simply mimicking ancient practices keeps us from constantly growing in this regard, we are doing anything but following our tradition.
