If we put all our eggs in the language basket...and lose it, we lose everything. Thatīs the way weīve structured the argument. There are countless tapes and programs of the language...itīs safe. Anyone wanting to can learn it.
Hundreds of thousands of Jews give money to Israel who know not a word of Hebrew...they donīt have to...Hebrew language schools are well funded...and even without a language, the identity and pride is there.
We stress language because itīs the easiest thing to "care about".
