Called to the Journey
© Rabbi Menachem Creditor
Given the tweets/headlines pouring out on social media, I feel even more called to take this journey to Israel. I am profoundly grateful (and devastated) that our timing coincided with a moment in Israel that our Rabbinic presence might truly be needed, even if "only" as a symbol of family support.
My commitment to this particular mission was born from a powerful combination of a yearning to be close to the Israel that is and an ache for the Israel that must come nearer through our passionate engagement. How humbling to truly feel both at once.
