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.

The Amen Effect: Rabbi Sharon Brous and Michaela Watkins in Conversation
Imagining a Land for All
It is precisely when the public square is consumed with fantasies of binary outcomes and our hearts are full of anguish that we honor those Israelis and Palestinians who are working in partnership to imagine a just and peaceful future. Rabbi Brous joins May Pundak and Dr. Rula Hardal, the Israeli and Palestinian co directors of A Land for All, to discuss their shared vision.

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
