22nd of Iyar, 5774
In response to various media reports and unsubstantiated accusations I would like to (once more) state that I have not in any way encouraged or helped organize the current phenomena termed "tag machir" ("price tag"). Although I understand the great frustration among certain youth to current unjust and immoral government policies, I teach that the proper response in such cases is through words not through deeds. The true strength of the Jewish people is in our ability to clearly express our opinions and thereby to influence others for the good. In this spirit, I believe that through education and strong identification with Jewish tradition, morals and ethics we can create much needed changes in the direction of the State of Israel.
