Rabbi Nachman’s advice, “the main thing is to have no fear at all” seems like a bit of black humor. If a bridge is high and narrow, how can we NOT be afraid?
A plan for action: Pick a name, pick a city, let them know that racism is real and unacceptable, apathy is culpability, black lives matter and the whole world is watching.
Two entire worlds were destroyed. It matters.
The time was then, and the time is now.
Judaism teaches us that justice is an essential value.
Where is the justice? It sure isn’t standing out there on San Pablo Ave, waiting patiently for a little food.
