Judaism celebrates life with the salute, “L’chaim.” The musical Fiddler on the Roof had a number of toasts to “L’chaim”, to life! It is a well known fact that the Jewish world treasures human existence and places the worth of each individual Jew at the top rung on the ladder. At times Christianity has recognized and embraced this value. At other times, it has forgotten. What not rethink the issue this fall? Isn’t the value of every life of such worth.
