My Latest in The Jerusalem Post: Shavuot, Hag Shiluv-A Festival of Inclusion

Let me know what you think!

"Actions matter; it is through the practice of an action that one inevitably begins to understand the action. Judaism then, seen through this lens, was from its very origins a religion of doing. The Israelites no doubt talked and talked amongst themselves (imagine how many opinions that many Jews would have), but what they brought to the table was their pledge to God that they would act according to His laws first and foremost."

"Na’aseh v’nishma can also be seen as the ultimate Jewish model for inclusion."
