No Victory Until All Have Crossed the Sea - R' Sharon Brous

On the Shabbat of my son’s bar mitzvah, I refuse to flatten our Torah or defang our heroes, robbing their words of their firepower precisely when we need them most. Dr. King was a radical, just as the story of our liberation from enslavement in Egypt is radical. For this fraught time, a radical read of the moment: exploitation and oppression, suppression and subversion thrive today only because enough of those who have reached the shore of freedom are prepared to turn our backs on those still scrambling to escape harm’s way. – R’ Sharon Brous

The attack on Congress last Jan.6 by supporters of the former president was part of a coordinated effort to overthrow the results of the election and to re-assert the authority of white supremacy to rule in the United States. I had the opportunity to talk with Congressman Adam Schiff about what this moment means and what we can do to preserve and transform our government into one that is more firmly rooted in equality and democracy. I ask you to listen to this conversation, share it with friends and family who may not yet feel the urgency of this time, and then take action in every way that you can to help ensure that our country does not slip into authoritarianism. My conversation with Rep. Schiff leaves me wondering, are we alarmed enough? – Rabbi Sharon Brous
