Choose Life: The New Right to Life Movement

The Rabbinic tradition transvalued the warriors into Sages who fought on the battlefield of Torah study. “Who is the hero? The one who triumphs over his will.” The 3rd century mishnah debated the symbolic meaning of the machinery of death.

They call on Isaiah, beating swords into plowshares, and spears into pruning hooks.
