In answer to Mel Wright (Readers' Forum, Sept. 9): "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." I am not Jewish by religion, but I have the rare privilege to be employed as the assistant to the director of Religious School and Youth Department at Congregation Kol Ami. As such, I have sat by the side of Rabbi Tracee Rosen in meetings where she has taught.
To say I am in awe of her doesn't begin to describe my feelings. She teaches, she really teaches! And what she says applies to all who are in the room directly and individually. I have been inspired and motivated. And, yes, I feel the spirit as she speaks.
In a scripture that is not Torah, we are taught that when we speak with the "tongues of men and angels and have not love, we have become as sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal." My heart aches for us when we judge others without love. Perhaps that is the only real sin of which we are truly capable.
