Two Nations in Your Womb

Friday Night Shabbat Service

When a fog lifts … what is it we behold in its absence? In her sermon from Friday November 17, 2023 Rabbi Jaclyn Cohen shares how one specific event of this past week broke through the haze of grief and existential dread so present since the events of October 7. Framed by parshat Toldot – in which we are introduced to the twins Jacob and Esau and their decades-long feud, Rabbi Cohen presents us with a framework through which we can consider what comes next for our brethren in the Middle East. This sermon is dedicated to the memory of peace activist Vivian Silver z”l.
