משה היה אומר יקוב הדין את ההר אבל אהרן אוהב שלום ורודף שלום
"Moshe used to say, 'Let the judgment/law pierce the mountain,' whereas Aharon loves peace and pursues peace." (Sanhedrin 6b)
I don't think there are any easy answers. And yet we have real-life issues which depend on which approach we take. So the best we can do, it seems to me, is just put in the work and try to hash it out, one issue at a time. That's what I'd like to do (at least in part) with this blog. Because even if on a given issue we believe the right thing to do is to come out strongly for truth, or strongly for peace, at the same time we might keep in mind the words of Zecharya the prophet: "Love truth and peace." The goal is to strive for both.
