WHAT 'BLACK PANTHER' CAN TEACH US ABOUT OUR PLACE IN THE WORLD

(Rabbi Vann, published on the Union for Reform Judaism website 11/12/18)


A few months into 5779, we are faced with even more uncertainty and unpredictability about our nation. To make matters worse, we isolate ourselves from one another and even within our own bubbles of agreement. We suffer from infighting and lack of compromise. Our disagreements ostracize and demonize in lieu of fostering dialogue. The vitriol, inability to work together, and “othering” of each other has driven an enormous and seemingly insurmountable wedge between us. It has brought anger, frustration and despair.

~ Rabbi Allison Vann with Chris Harrison (URJ)
