This work is about “v’ahavta l’reyekha kamokha” — “love your neighbor as yourself.” The basic principles are straightforward — that each of us is beloved, that we are all interconnected and that we are here to care for one another. Working to manifest this wholeness is a great challenge and requires great courage and humility.
Judaism has never followed a path of least resistance. We know that the work is necessary for our collective well-being and liberation. It is up to us, the current leaders of the Jewish community, to decide that our communities will no longer leave segments of our community behind – and that it is worth our effort to ensure that everyone within our beautiful and complex religious community has the opportunity to thrive.
