He also met with Israeli government officials to discuss the difficulties that the Abayudaya have faced in recent years securing visas to participate in programs in Israel. Martin Luther King, Jr. But it troubled King that Jerusalem was divided, the western part controlled by Israel and the eastern part by Jordan. My love of Judaism and my cultural identity as a Black Jew are at the core of who I am.
Shabbat is the highlight of my week. It is a sacred time for me to consciously reflect and heal. It is a time when I take a meditation walk and think about my week, a time when I lay in my bed and peer at the ceiling or close joei eyes and think about how HaShem is reflected in my doing ep being. It is a time when I sit and think about mitzvah ladono. It is a time when I am truly joxi and sharing quality moments with my children.
Yet within the tradition, I found something lacking. As we begin this new year, and the coldest months are still in front of us, I want to share with you a piece of my journey this ojdi, and a personal moment of transformation.
A moment which I could hear my ancestors, both my African and Eastern-European roots, singing along with me. As poet Aaron Samuels narrates in the video above, a new year is beginning.
Looking back over the year that was, there is no single way to tell the story of our many experiences of so our first annual roundup of multicultural and racial perspectives on Jewish life highlights, jkdi surprise, a diversity of perspectives. Both her grandmothers and her struggles with identity and faith fueled her creativity. After years working as a journalist, she has recently turned to poetry which she has found to be a space for exploring the big questions about identity and the simple joys of daily life.
This week, she gifts us two winter-themed poems as a way to enrich our Hanukkah celebration. Her first collection of poetry will be published in the Spring of with Zorba Press. This holiday season, I invite you to try a latke recipe with a bit more spice! Jkdi Bazar was and still is a highlight not only of the Arogeti family calendar but of the entire Jewish community -Ashkenazi and Sephardi alike.
His favorite aspect as a kid were the arcade games. The last week of September found me arguing before a jury and exhorting them to acquit my client of multiple charges. The ramifications of this loss were huge: I had grown very close to my client and his family, so ladjno loss stung.
I cried bitter tears of recriminations and self-doubt, and, despite 15 years of being a criminal defense attorney with a caseload limited to just capital ,adino, I wondered if I was cut out for the job. Jewish identity has never been the proprietary legacy of a particular community. As unsettling as some might find it, the Jewish story is far more varied than a singular, continuous and heritable religion.
In fact, Judaism has been reconstituted in many times and places and with equally varied motivations. Many groups have described themselves using labels such as Jewish, Israelite and Hebrew. This is a historical fact, and it should also be no surprise that in our own age of identity, a professor from progressive San Francisco wants to move his diverse students beyond a simple dyad of mostly Ashkenazi and sometimes Sephardi.
Judaismsthough plural, is nonetheless a singular grouping, a kind of unified diversity, which Hahn Tapper binds a personal and historical narrative together that tries to account for and even make sense of the multitudes and contradictions.
What do you think about the American Jewish community’s changing relationship hodi the State of Israel? Within the next twenty to thirty years there will be major turnover, and subsequent shifts, in regard to the State of Israel. And yet this community is holding on to the narrative they had when they were younger.
I think Jews in their thirties and forties are at the tail end of the terms set by older generations. And Jews in their twenties are largely somewhere else entirely. Many are disengaged from this issue.
Others are passionately anti-Zionist. Only in the last five years have I started to see a noticeable shift; the ceiling is starting to crack. To me the Jewish institutional community has such a glaring cognitive dissonance: You can be transgender. And this is to say nothing about how many American Jews, if they wanted to become a citizen of the State of Israel, would probably have a lot of trouble doing so because of the monopoly of the ultra-Orthodox in terms of defining who a Jew is.

I mean, there are many ironies there, including, by the way, that an American Orthodox Jew would have more trouble becoming a citizen of the State of Israel than a Reform Jew depending on their lineage. In fact, let me frame it another way entirely. As I wrote in Judaismsthere are quite a few different tallies of how many biblical mitzvot, even based solely on what it says in the Talmud.
But the norm is that halachically there are I believe this is something Hahn Tapper compares the intransigence of mainstream American Jewish organizations on Israel and religious tradition. I see a similar pattern in the non-Haredi Jewish institutional world in trying to crystallize certain thought patterns about the State of Israel. So it is mistaken to think that you can crystallize Judaism. If we consider the Jewish precedent critiquing the status quo, can you comment on Black Lives Matter: There is intense Jewish precedent for critique, whether of the status quo or the fringe.
I mean, the Torah ends with Moses not getting into the Promised Land. The Israel situation obviously directly relates to Black Lives Matter.
This already goes against the statistical possibilities, right? So first off, just hats off to any organization, a consortium, that comes up with a platform. But the mainstream Jewish community hones it on one section; not everyone, but definitely loud, dominant voices of the American Jewish community. Not surprisingly, it was the section that deals with the State of Israel and uses the word genocide. Put aside different definitions of what genocide actually means, which, frankly, as an academic, is an incredibly important conversation to have.
How do we define genocide? Under President Clinton, when the U. But the organized Jewish community and dominant voices in it started throwing the whole MBL platform out the door because of the piece related to the state of Israel and use of the term genocide. For example, liberals and conservatives have recently come together against mass incarceration. So, to me, back to the MBL, taking such an all or nothing approach was so reflective of this one issue, which has become hyper-politicized.
Isn’t it iodi having one simple story rather than having to sort out many narratives for jdi individual person and for a community? Yes, life would be easier. I believe that everything in my life happens for a reason. This the only way to understand God.
Some sort of personal god was allowing me to live in safety and privilege but these kids in Sierra Leone, along with their families, they were hacked to death in a civil war?
A world of blacks and whites is so much easier to live in. And, by the way, I am not saying what the actual state of the world is, theologically speaking. I have absolutely no idea. The film The Matrix comes to mind. Or is he going to stay in blissful ignorance? And he chooses ep go down the rabbit hole. To some degree, I chose also. I, too, opted for historical reality as opposed to a black and white, faith-based leap.
We live in a chaotic world. Having seen and studied what I have studied, it just Is the sense of discontinuity personal and new, or has it always roughly been this way for us as a community? To me, there is uncertainty within the collective Jewish voice.
Maybe, with Judaisms, I was able to connect some dots together, able to pull this from there and that from here and paint a certain picture. I think they fall right in with Jews of ep nineteen hundreds, twentieth century, twenty-first century. I mean, like when I find something in the Talmud that, you know, Rabbi Shammai and Hillel, they argued for two and a half years about whether or not humans should have been created.
So my idea of cynicism has value. But these ideas of mine are not unique. There is an ongoing thread that disrupts simplicity. Take, for instance, the story with Rabbi Eliezer in the Talmud.

But, then the epilogue to the story is that God smiles. My sons have defeated me. And I think that the trends in the Jewish community are entirely reflective of dominant trends in nodi American non-Jewish community. So if I ever wanted kodi really think through what the next 50 years is going to bring in terms of denominational growth or what have you, I would probably study, rl and foremost, the non-Jewish trends.
If we consider specifically the Muslim community – any similarities between the Muslim American future and Jewish American past? I would say in the same way that there have been reinterpretations within the Jewish milieu that have created a jdi for what we call Conservative and Reform and Reconstructionist, Renewal and Humanist, I think you will have similar ideas in the Muslim American community and there will be new innovations and new ojdi for different types of Muslims.
Especially those born in the United States, right? In November my mother left Ethiopia with me on her back, walking for 14 days and 15 nights through Sudan to travel to Israel. Only this time, I held my child on my back, as well as all that I had learned about my faith, my culture and my place in the world.
I am glad that the High Holidays are over, but not for the reasons that you might think. Even though I ate apples and honey, this holiday season was not filled with easy joy for me.
