The Inescapable Ideals

“The fact, which is the result of centuries of experience, is that no one of us can evade the demands of idealism.”

On January 29, 1961, Rabbi Olan explored what it is to be practical vs. idealistic and where moral principles come into play on either side.

“The world tends to divide men into those who are practical, and others who are idealists, emphasizing the belief that ideals are impractical.”

Throughout this radio sermon Rabbi Olan touches on many topics we struggle with today — workers’ rights, accessibility to education, health care — and demonstrates how embracing ideals is not only practical but critical to how we think, act, and advance.
