This morning, I woke unsure. Some mornings are like that. But promises made are gifts as well, so I showed up and felt the warmth of friends. We greeted each other learned and learned a bit. Then I signed off and felt unsure again. My holy wife found me feeling all the feelings, listening to intense spiritual music, and she held me and comforted me, gave me some solid wisdom and gentle care. So I guess there are a few truly beautiful things I do feel sure of, even (and especially) when I feel unsure. Upwards, friends. Onward. Let's feel the feelings, and build the world a little more lovingly today.

Today is a heavy day. And, so, in the name of those we've lost to and , and in the name of those whose futures feel more uncertain today than they did yesterday, I commit to cultivating kindness - within myself and for those around me. One way I've labored to amplify the courageous voices of others is by collecting voices as witness to these real, lived moments and publishing them to demonstrate the patterns of shared experience we might not otherwise realize. May we be blessed to look within and see in our hearts the strength to love each other and our world more and more and more.When We Turned Within (Vol 2): amazon.com/dp/B08L9S68T4

So moved by my conversation today with dear friend and co-editor Sarah Tuttle-Singer about our new book series, When We Turned Within (Volumes 1 & 2).
So moved by my conversation today with dear friend and co-editor Sarah Tuttle-Singer about our new book series, When We Turned Within (Volumes 1 & 2). The experience of swimming in the hearts and souls of the 165 contributors to Volume 1 and the 107 contributors to Volume 2 has been at once overwhelming, grief-full, inspiring, and a profound honor. My deep thank to Sarah and our fellow authors for offering of themselves so purely and freely. Here's to looking back at these moments and seeing how care translated into pages, and from pages into the world we share.

There is beauty in the world, dreams worth dreaming. Sometimes hints of them come true. It is upon us to continue dreaming, to choose hope, to build the best parts of our wishful thinking into reality, one scene at a time. Honor. Dignity. Honest work. Empathy. Those belong at the heart of any nation's sense of self. Whose heart doesn't long for deep compassion and kindness to sit side by side with power and duty? I believe. I believe. I believe.
In the midst of these strange times, a growing community of friends have joined together every weekday morning at 9am on the UJA-Federation ...
