It’s Time To Treat the Disease

Rabbi Sharon Brous

Tazria-Metzora Sermon. Rabbi Sharon Brous

“I don’t think we get to pretend that this stuff didn’t happen. This is like a disease. You have to treat it.” – Bryan Stevenson

When signs of the affliction tzara’at begin to appear on the walls of our homes, the Torah prescribes a number of steps to eradicate the disease. The underlying principle: we cannot move forward until we come to terms with the past. The new Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration, built in a former slave warehouse in Montgomery, AL, is an attempt to do just that.
