I want to thank everyone who took part in our discussion of Torah Min Hashamayim at EB this past Shabbat.  I trust that the session was a fair overview of the background and context of the Zev Farber saga and that our community has a better feel for the personalities and interrelationships in the Modern Orthodox community that is now responding to Dr. Farber's posts. It is by no coincidence that the bulk of the critique of his comments is now being posted on the Moreorthodoxy blog, which has been the social media resource used most effectively by Chovevei Torah and the International Rabbinic Fellowship, with which Dr. Farber is closely identified.  The first major post was by Ben Elton, a student at YCT and the most recent one by Rabbi Yitzchak Blau, a prominent Talmid Hacham and Jewish educator.  Rabbi Blau, ordained by YU and squarely in the Centrist/Rav Soloveitchik camp, has been praised by the blog's readers for his eloquent and restrained response to Dr. Farber's posts. You can read what he has to say by clicking on http://morethodoxy.org/2013/08/05/guest-post-by-rav-yitzhak-blau-the-documentary-hypothesis-and-orthodox-judaism/
