  2. Let's Journey Together

  3. Brant Rosen psalm 79

    can you pour out your love
    upon the ones you do not know,
    the ones who mutter their strange
    and fearful prayers, who
    refuse to call upon god
    by your comfortable, familiar names?

    can you tear open your robe and
    let your compassion bleed out,
    swaddling and comforting
    those you have been taught to fear
    with an indignation that burns
    like a devouring fire?

    are you ready to mourn
    the dead of another family
    whose blood is your blood,
    the one who looks like a stranger
    but is, in truth,
    your own flesh and kin?

  4. Amidah for Peace, Justice, and Immigration

    This alternative Amidah was used during mincha prayers by members of the Reconstructionist Rabbinic Association outside of an Immigration Processing Center in order to call attention to the plight of immigrants and underscore the importance of the Jewish obligation to welcome the stranger. It is meant to be done as a call and response.

    Avot

    God of our ancestors. God of immigrants. God of refugees. We are border crossers.
    We tie our fate with You who cannot be contained by customs offices. You who requires no passport

  5. Optimism Poem

    More and more I have come to admire resilience.
    Not the simple resistance of a pillow, whose foam
    returns over and over to the same shape, but the sinuous
    tenacity of a tree: finding the light newly blocked on one side,
    it turns in another. A blind intelligence, true.
    But out of such persistence arose turtles, rivers,
    mitochondria, figs—all this resinous, unretractable earth.

    —Jane Hirshfield

  7. Book Club 10/20/17 First Session

    I think there’s an appetite to know. I think there’s an incredible hunger to understand…We have to embrace ignorance because it is a permanent state in Jewish learning. You will never master it. But instead of feeling frustrated, we can feel energized by that.
