Apologies for being preoccupied over summer and not writing more regularly.  Today’s news of the death of Elie Wiesel prompted my thoughts to return to the matter of SBL turning a blind eye to the discriminatory practices of partner institutions. So, I shall endeavor to get back to the blogging at more regular intervals, and continue my assessment of the SBL’s response thus far to various member concerns on discriminatory practices and academic freedom.  For now, I’ll just leave things with these words from Wiesel’s Nobel Prize speech.

We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere.
