Richard Wagner, T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare. Sometimes the most important or even sublime messages are delivered by highly imperfect messengers. This is the case in the Jewish tradition as well, which includes complex and flawed figures like biblical Joseph or King David. Does Judaism allow one to separate the message from the messenger?
