It’s a Hard World, But a Wonderful World Too

Rabbi Sharon Brous

Shabbat Ki Tisa Sermon.

Like Moses, we all sometimes live behind masks—obscuring our radiance, our full glory, and also our sadness, darkness, and fear. For some, the only place that feels safe is behind the mask, even though living there only further isolates us, and may even endanger our lives. To all those peering out from behind the masveh, the mask: I see you. We see you. We love you. It is a hard world, but it is a wonderful world too. Hold on. Hold on.
