Ravens provide teachable moment

I am surprised at Stuart Jay Robinson's letter about an NFL game being scheduled on a holiday ("The NFL displays religious insensitivity," Sept. 7). Mr. Robinson asks, "How can we be expected to teach our children that heritage, culture, family history and faith take priority over money?"

How about discussing with your children what God asked Abraham to do — sacrifice his son. If Abraham was willing to do that for God, surely your children can be asked to give up one football game in order to celebrate Rosh Hashanah.

Rather than kvetch, try and look at the situation as a wonderful teaching opportunity. The outcome of that strategy certainly would have been better than what the Ravens did on Thursday.
