A lot is awry at the moment: political violence in America, white nationalists in the streets, and a general feeling of unease as 5783 kicks off with a renewed sense of dread and antisemitism. A recap of October.
059 | A Heart with Many Rooms
So much to grapple with right now; I’m overwhelmed, and you may be, too.
All I can contribute at this moment is that I know that escalating violence never works.
May there be peace in my lifetime. Rachamim—Compassion—רַחֲמִים.

Posted @withregram • @adameli I’ve never met Rabbi Blausten but I’m grateful for her words “Our sages taught ‘make for yourself a heart of many rooms עשה לבך חדרי חדרים’. And with that teaching a reminder that it is possible, perhaps essential, to be upset and angry at rockets, at evictions, at airstrikes, at racist incitement, and to not compromise our humanity through selective compassion”
