  2. Tzedakah and the Jewish Holidays

    (With thanks to the Shefa Fund - whose successor organization, Jewish Funds for Justice, has become part of Bend The Arc - for the idea for this piece.)

    For centuries, giving to tzedakah has been a traditional way to mark Jewish holidays. But all holidays are not created equal. In this resource, we offer connections between the theme of each holiday or season, and some possible giving opportunities that correspond with it. 

    Rosh Hashanah

  4. Perhaps You Belong in a Reconstructionist Community

    “To be a Jew means first belonging to the group…” - Mordecai Kaplan

    Thriving within a Jewish framework

  6. What Are You Asking For?

    (A guided meditation on Psalm 27, from God Loves the Stranger: Stories, Poems, Prayers)

     

    One thing I ask of Adonai, only that do I seek.

    Imagine if you could ask one thing of Adonai.

    Imagine if reality, life, all the power and resources in existence could grant you one thing and one thing alone.

    (Pause) Take a few deep belly breaths.

    For this moment let your thoughts float freely.

    What would it be?

  7. 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
