Frankly, rabbi, we don’t care what your opinion is about the health care program.

I have known David Wolpe for close to 30 years. I have never discussed politics with him. I have always tried to pry information about Judaism from him because he has written more than a few books on the subject. Other than that, we have discussed family. I have no idea what his political beliefs are, nor do I care. I do know he was in a meeting of Jewish rabbis and religious teachers I helped to arrange with President George W. Bush, and he was favorably impressed with Bush’s earnest commitment to Israel, as were others in the room. But on the rare occasion I get to see him these days, I would never discuss politics. I am in no way surprised my friend wrote such a column; he is a very wise man.
