The only way to stop baseless hatred is to adopt the derech of R. Kook – baseless love. Maybe the haters will move toward the middle, which is a big step forward. But one must avoid the huge stumbling block: the conditionality that’s embedded within Judaism itself which encourages judgmentalism, criticism, self-righteousness, harshness, severity — all things that are connected to hatred and which are opposed to the most fundamental principal of the Torah, “love your neighbor as yourself.”
In essence, do not avoid Judaism, but rather the conditionality that’s embedded in Judaism.
