Diversity at AIPAC Policy Conference

Chevreh, I'm sitting with friends at the AIPAC Policy Conference in (snowy) Washington DC. For all the perception wars surrounding Israel in our larger communities, there is racial, religious, denominational - and, perhaps most shockingly, political - diversity in this 14,000 strong gathering, the biggest annual Jewish event in the US. If you'd like to connect with any of us when we get back, and if you'd like to be part of Policy Conference next year, please reach out. You might be surprised what you'll experience.

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.
