    I'm reading an article here on MSNBC and the last 3 paragraphs stood out to me


    "It's terribly important that we all address the issue of moral decay," Granatstein said. "We have to recover the greatness of Judaism, and the only way to do that is to emphasize its moral message."

    Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, author of the book "The Blessings of Enough," said it's impossible to be a good Jew without being a good person, too. Jews have overlooked ostentatious displays of wealth at lavish bar mitzvahs and weddings for too long, he said.

    "I salute the call to return to our call values," said Boteach, of Englewood. "We need to start filling the empty spaces in ourselves with more purpose and good deeds, instead of money and impulse purchases."


    It seems to me that Someone already did this, though many didn't listen to Him. Does anyone else see the irony here? The Sermon on the Mount for a good start?!?!?!
