    Rabbi Shafran – Once again, a virtuoso piece. Some major arguments omitted, however. Alone among the World religions, Judaism does not require the acceptance of its Torah for a non-Jewto earn a place in Heaven. Judaism does not condone forced conversion and there is no instance of this having taken place in recorded History. Finally there are the arguments so often made by Rav Hirsch, zt’l, that various Laws, such as the treatment of Slaves, are at such great variance with socially accepted norms in any period prior to the modern era, or the fact that the Torah precisely at the critical juncture of Moses taking up his mission in returning to Egypt, interrupts the narrative to emphasize his origins, lest it ever be thought that he was more than an ordinary mortal.
