Subculture Vulture: Moshe Kasher & Rabbi Sharon Brous in Conversation
I Will Not Turn Away - Rabbi Sharon Brous
We must reject the way of eternal war. The hostages must be returned to their loved ones. Humanitarian aid must reach the people of Gaza immediately. Israeli and Palestinian leadership must commit to a long term negotiated peace. There is another way, and saying so is not betrayal… it is love.
Parashat Tetzaveh 5784

Bearing Witness to the Space Between - Rabbi Hannah Jensen
My reflections on a week spent at the U.S./Mexico border, witnessing up close the horrors that are happening every single day. We continue to make
it nearly impossible for people seeking asylum to safely enter this country and
with the numbers of displaced people around the world growing quickly, we need
better solutions. The Torah's images of the keruvim (cherubs) offer us two versions
- what will we choose?
Tell the Story - Rabbi Morris Panitz
If law is the ground upon which we stand, story must be the water
that softens the soil. When law leaves story behind, it runs the risk of
disregarding the human beings it's meant to protect. In the last year and
a half, since Roe V. Wade was overturned, far too many women and people who
need abortion access have been dangerously denied care. It’s time to tell their
stories and protect the right to reproductive freedom.

Thank You for helping to shape my moral world view
These sermons and classes teach me so much and help put into words and context my own personal moral view. The Rabbis are all smart, interesting and challenging!
I’m a shy Jew. Raised in a home where my Judaism was hidden. I’m no longer in that closet. But still shy. That’s to say I attend temple on this podcast. Xxxx
