Rabbi's Week In Review- 09/01/2020

09/01/2020 08:37:16 AM

Sep1

As I write this week, I am in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, gracious friends having given Fay and me use of their mountain house for a few days. My original intent was not to write much of anything and chalk it up to a week on vacation. While I will write something, my words will remain on the short side.

The truth is that the recent strife of a pandemic, the violence of white supremacists and attendant issues of racism, and the fear of an uncertain economic future have not taken the week off. So while there has been time for much needed mind-clearing, relaxation and some hiking, with a reminder of the natural beauty that our country still has to offer, a part of me remains in the strife. I cannot say I look forward to the work that awaits me upon my return to the “real world,” but I am committed to that work. It is with that work that fear turns into hope, and hope turns into much needed action and change.
