  4. Tetzaveh / Purim 2021 - Yael Ridberg

    Purim 2020 was the last in-person event celebrated by many Jewish communities around the country before the COVID-19 shutdown.

    The Shabbat before the holiday of Purim is known as Shabbat Zakhor (“Remember!”). We read an additional Torah passage (Deuteronomy 25:17-19) recalling Amalek, a genocidal enemy from our distant past who is both the spiritual and physical ancestor of Haman, the villain of the Purim story.

  7. Parshat Bo 2021: The Rituals of Democracy - Yael Ridberg

    (Written for Shabbat Bo, January 22, 2021, and originally published at The Times of Israel as “The Rituals of American Democracy” Used with kind permission.) 

    Wednesday morning, I settled in to watch the inaugural events unfold. I was filled with anticipation and relief that the last four years were over, and a new era was about to begin. I was transfixed watching the guests arrive at the Capitol only two weeks after the temple of democracy was overrun by a seditious mob.

  10. A Plague of Darkness - Passover DT Strassfeld

    There is a plague of darkness that has fallen not only on our land but upon the world. Actually, there are many plagues — just as in Egypt they seem to come in groups even though just one plague would be more than enough — dayyenu. The coronavirus is certainly a plague that has affected every family, passing over some homes but striking too many others.

    There is also a plague of scarcity:
    A shortage of ventilators, protective gear and hospital beds.
