Rabbi Dr. Benjamin Lau’s article, esp. the parts on the deaf and the blind, appear to be based directly on Tzvi C. Marx’s book. Rabbi Dr. Lau ought not to have plagiarized, and he ought to have credited Marx’s book.

I watched the film all the way through – a well-made and brave statement.
It reminded me of Joan Baez’s soliloquy of a similar nature. I don’t know if it is any consolation, but I guess many people find a lot of resonance with her conclusion, as expressed in the last few words of the song

(sorry, this is just an amateur cover)
