The prophet Jeremiah told the weary and heart-broken exiles of Jerusalem that they should seek the peace of the city. Rabbis, along with faith leaders of every tradition, teach that a broken society is one in which we fail to take care of others.MoreThe prophet Jeremiah told the weary and heart-broken exiles of Jerusalem that they should seek the peace of the city. Rabbis, along with faith leaders of every tradition, teach that a broken society is one in which we fail to take care of others. This book asks some very hard questions of America in the midst of a Gun Violence epidemic, and presents a passionate, hopeful, healing response to a moment of national pain and fragility. The rabbis in this collection ask: How many innocent deaths will it take for our elected officials to respond with moral conviction? How long must America wait to acknowledge that we lose 30+ American lives to Gun Violence every day, scarring our national life? How many tears must be shed? Learn, connect, and be inspired with the voices of todays rabbinic leaders.
