In the opinion section of the Forward, you will encounter many conflicting points of view. Our mission is to publish the smartest takes on Jewish life from across the many spectrums that make up our community. You’ll find opinions you agree with, opinions you disagree with, and opinions that surprise you. We are committed to finding nuance where there was none, to sharing new perspectives that illuminate conversations we are already debating, and to lifting up the voices of those you don’t usually hear from, who are often sidelined from the conversation. We are committed to expressing, developing, and challenging our own and our readers’ views and beliefs honestly and in good faith. Everyone with a legitimate point of view on a topic of relevance to the Jewish community who wants to honestly engage with those she disagrees with has a seat at this table.
