October 30th, 2020 — Shabbat Lekh Lekha
Our ancestors’ first journey teaches us that it’s in the displacement, in the place of uncertainty, that we find the promise of self-realization. This year we hear this ancient truth not only amidst the fevered pitch of election season, but also having held many years of collective anxiety and spiritual whiplash. When everything else is stripped away, when we’ve been laid bare—we’ve shown what’s worth fighting for. And we will continue to do so, in power and with love.
