What Are We Holding On To? Of What Must We Let Go? On Holocaust Remembrance, the Gaza Sniper, and a Growing Culture of Intolerance

Rabbi Sharon Brous

Shabbat Shemini Sermon. Rabbi Sharon Brous

Rabbi Harold Schulweis argued that the depth agenda for the post-Holocaust generation was the way we extract meaning from our nightmare. Only when we simultaneously hold on to the grief AND let go of the eternal victimization, the eternal justification of hatred of the other, will we honor the memory of our suffering and build a society that reflects our Jewish values.
