The Hour Has Come for Serious Thought

Rabbi Sharon Brous

Shabbat B’shallah 5781 Sermon.

From the Book of Exodus to Camus’ The Plague to COVID19: sometimes the suffering is a wakeup call—an unveiling of root causes and a chance to reverse course. The hour has come for serious thought regarding the system failures that have exacerbated this pandemic, including the connection between the climate crisis and the proliferation of new infectious diseases. May we come to see that our physical health depends on the health of our planet and all those creatures with whom we share the earth.
