Soloveichik Agrees with Lopatin, According to Lopatin, by Rabbi Asher Lopatin

A letter for Dr. Yitzchak Zev Soloveichik: First saying that it seems from the Soloveichik family that Rav Soloveichik said "She'asani Yisrael." But more fundamentally, he affirms Rabbi Lopatin's Orthodox position that outside ideas, philosophies and methodologies influence how we understand Torah and halacha (Jewish law). However, the outside world does not dictate a postion: it merely pushes us to look at our tradition in a different way and honestly search for what our Torah wants us to do.
