November 17th, 2018 — Shabbat Vayetze
The actual threat to American Jews today comes from the armed and state-supported far right, but it’s antisemitism from the left- where most Jews find our home- that poses the greater psychic threat. It hurts our hearts and challenges our sense of self. Even still, I’m not walking away from intersectional justice movements. It’s not only because together we’re fighting bigger battles, but also because I really want to see you. And I want to be seen by you. And walking away might feel good and righteous for a moment, but surely it will not help us see one another.
