Don't Play Defense. Play Offense!

Loved the dvar Torah and it is for sure true that the influence of peer pressure affects anyone of any age and background. However, I disagree that insulating ourselves is not only unrealistic, but unwise. This reactionary position has led to a lot of unhealthy issues in many Torah communities. The answer, I believe, is not to go further on the defensive, but on the offensive. Let's go out there and spread Yiddishkeit and Jewish values far and wide! Let's get more Jews involved in Yiddishkeit and let's even tell our non-Jewish friend's about the 7 Noachide laws and other things they can do to lead a more spiritual life. We are in the footsteps of Moshiach and the time is ripe for us to utilize modern technology and other tools at our disposal to finally make this world a place in which Hashem wishes to dwell.
