Justice, Justice You Shall Pursue: with Ruth Messinger in the Bay Area!


Justice, Justice You Shall Pursue: A Jewish imperative for famine and hunger relief

Over the past several decades, there has been a sea change in Jewish engagement—a reimagining of what it means to be a Jew and a citizen of our planet. Whether youth leaders or active adults, Jewish voices have joined a chorus of empowered people around the world saying "no" to injustice. As hunger relief and famine now make the front page every day, it is our responsibility as Jews to do something. Join AJWS President Ruth Messinger for a dynamic discussion about AJWS's role in famine relief, food justice and the upcoming national Global Hunger Shabbat. Learn more about how you can be a part of it all.

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
