  1. Inclusion and Disabilities: Hebrew and English Texts

    For Jewish Disabilities Awareness month in February of 2014, Rabbi Michelle Greenfield, RRC ’12 examined the Torah readings found that month with an eye toward issues of inclusion and disability. She also included  “Some Biblical and Rabbinic Sources on Disability: An Honest Look,” in which she examines the use and misuse of Hebrew texts that are often quoted when talking about inclusion of people with different abilities. Her English commentary provides a deeper understanding of these texts' strengths and limitations.

  7. Being Part of the Universe

    Let us begin by remembering that the spiritual always points toward the unity of things, not their division. Judaism tries to help us to work from a higher perspective. To celebrate the creation of the world, as we do on Rosh Hashanah, is to see ourselves as an integral part of all that is and not to see ourselves as the measure of all things. The egotistical, self-centered part of our mind, “the evil urge” if you will, always leads us to experience our separateness from the natural world.

    “Dear God:

  10. Zionism and Communal Covenant

    In 2004, the JRF Israel Policies Task Force issued a report calling for a recommitment to Zionism.
