This Rosh Hashanah Let Us Practice Radical Empathy and Compassion

Download our Rosh Hashanah drash, written by Rabbi Michael Rothbaum.

As we approach an election which is very much about the character of our country — whether we want this to be a country of empathy and compassion, a nation that welcomes the stranger and lends a helping hand — we invite you to read and discuss our Rosh Hashanah drash by Rabbi Michael Rothbaum. The topic is radical empathy, explored through the story of Hagar and Ishmael. The lessons could not be more relevant to this moment in the US, in Israel, and across the globe.
