Someone asked me if I am going to be writing a post about the kidnapped boys. Like everyone else, I am consumed with worry, sadness, despair. But what's there to actually say? I did draft a lengthy post about which responses classical Judaism maintains to be of help and which responses it does not maintain to be of help. But I was very, very uneasy about posting it, so I sent it to two very different people for their opinion, and both strongly advised me that now is not the time for such a discussion.
