June 5th, 2021 — Shabbat Shlakh 5781
I want my Jewish children to inherit our traditions and our history, but I don’t want them to inherit our trauma, especially if that means closing their hearts to another people’s pain. Recognizing someone else’s just cause in no way diminishes our own. The brave path, the strong path requires a defortification of our hearts. Let down our defenses and see what we might learn. Strong views, loosely held.
