The Progressive Jew’s Handbook
The most important precept by which progressive Jews are guided is the 'Israel must be perfect' principle. That means Israel cannot live by the usual code of human conduct that governs every other person and community on the planet. No siree, Israel must be more humane, more generous, more forgiving, more transparent, more sacrificing, more understanding and less self-serving than any other nation or society. How else could the Jewish people demonstrate their moral purity to the rest of the world?
