For Shabbos, I’d like you all to read my friend Rabbi Berel Wein’s illuminating article Saturday Night Live. Here he contrasts two rallies: a so-called peace rally in Jerusalem, with by the usual suspects, Jews entirely estranged from Judaism and from the very land they inhabit.
And in deep contrast, selichos, Lamentations, in shul, synagogue. A portrait of Jews who are immersed in Judaism, in a “call to a deeper self.” As always, Rabbi Wein gets it just right.
May you all have a lovely and meaningful Shabbos.
