    #19: Broken Swastikas: The Shared Burden of History (Rabbi Joseph Edelheit & Rabbi Marcia Zimmerman)

    Rabbi Zimmerman talks with Temple Israel’s former Senior Rabbi Joseph Edelheit about his most unusual donation to Temple Israel: a swastika. In its original context, it was one of five hakenkreuze (broken crosses) that adorned the St. Mary’s Cathedral in St. Cloud. Rabbi Edelheit shares the story of the interfaith collaboration that led to the removal of these swastikas, and how the Jewish community must remain committed to dialogue across difference.
