September 30th, 2019 — Rosh Hashanah I, 5780
The temperatures are rising, the Amazon is burning, storm surges are devastating our cities. It matters how we respond to this crisis. Even while we can’t do everything, there is no moral or scientific calculation that justifies doing nothing. We must be part of a culture shift, a shift in consciousness. We must build islands of spiritual resistance. דבר זה תלוי בנוּ– the matter depends on us.
