Rabbi Brous' Sermon
Productive Anger

Anger can disease the soul; it can paralyze us, render us ineffective or even dangerous. But now is not the time to suppress our indignation. Anger that’s driven by hope and love can be a tool of transformation– and it may be exactly what our society needs as we grieve another senseless slaughter of kids in school.

Working in coalitions to achieve our goals is an important strategy, but it can often put us in the uncomfortable position of collaborating with someone on one issue while holding significant difference on another.

 

Where do we draw the line? When do we stand up for our partners? When do we walk away? When do we run?

FAQ
Are you a synagogue or what?

Yes and no and kinda.

Words like “synagogue” can feel constraining, and we want to think expansively about what Jewish life can be. More FAQs here.
