Message from Rabbi Andrea

May 17, 2018

Gazans are humans who live under deplorable conditions. Their despair is almost impossible to imagine. Their human waves of assault on the hated border fence must be seen in this context.

Israelis are human beings whose country was founded in survivalism and resilience. Their feeling of isolation is almost impossible to imagine. Their defense of their border must be seen in this context.

Is it possible to keep the humanity of both groups in front of us?

This is from Beth Shuman, American coordinator of Combatants for Peace, who were recently hosted by Temple Israel:
