    As we look forward to reading the Book of Ruth on the holiday of Shavuot, Rabbi David Gedzelman explores the text with an eye towards literary elements which speak of how the Hebrew Bible pushes forward structures of covenantal openness, societal protection and compassion towards the other built on and transcending the requirements of the Law.

  4. 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?

  5. 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

    “As we get ready for Channukah, Fair Trade seems like a wonderful way to ‘welcome the stranger.’ And that is not something I would have thought of before participating in this.”

  10. Rev Your Engines 11/9/17

    I ask myself, what is my work with people. And what is my work for myself? And I know it’s about empowerment. Seeing people, knowing people, loving people. When we talk about empowerment, we need to start with our students, not with ourselves.
