Rabbi Samson Hirsch: Progress Allied to Religion!

See this great essay by Rabbi Samson Rafael Hirsch. The question is just as fresh today: Torah or Modernity? In some circles “modern” is synonymous with “impious”. But this is a false dichotomy! We subjugate the world and all newly discovered powers thereof to God. Technology must be used to enable religion. We must continually improve our Mitzvah observance based on new wisdom and better science.
