Join the FB "Rabbi David Hartman Study Group" @Hartman_Inst

Join the FB "Rabbi David Hartman Study Group" -- In response to Rabbi David Hartman's recent passing, this group is dedicated to further promote and provide online study options for those who wish to learn more about Rabbi Hartman's thought, especially as it finds expression in his many publications. Over the next year, we hope to open up an academic forum which systematically moves through three of his major works: A Living Covenant (1997), Israelis and the Jewish Tradition (2000), and The God Who Hates Lies (2011). --

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.
