If I Forget Thee

December 9th, 2017 — Shabbat Vayeshev

Rabbi Sharon Brous

We are a people that has been kept alive for millenia by an impossible yearning for Jerusalem, so for many, the promise to move the embassy feels like a great cosmic tikkun. But there are no shortcuts to the realization of our worthiest dreams. Let us not fall for the political grandstanding; let’s continue to work toward a resolution that sees and honors all who love this precious, tender, holy place and call it home.
