Message from the Rabbi

Dear Friends,

As I write amidst the snow and ice I feel heartened in the knowledge that springtime will come and that the festival of Passover will help dispel the chill brought on by this winter's blizzards and freezes. We languish now in the doldrums between two celebrations of freedom – the Martin Luther King holiday and the Festival of Passover. Both include commemorations of historic events – especially this year as we mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Selma, led by Dr. King- an event that galvanized the nation and transformed the “Mixed Multitude” of activists into a force that brought our nation to a new era of civil rights and moved us far toward a more equal society. Yet, the work of the martyred Dr. King and of his followers is not complete. Just as we pray each day that the redemption of the Exodus be extended to a more complete redemption for all humankind, so too must we redouble our efforts to bring to fruition the vision of Dr. King in our own country and beyond.

Recently Susannah Heschel, daughter of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote an article on her father's participation in the Selma March that was published in the Forward. Susannah Heschel wrote: “The 50th anniversary of the 1965 march at Selma is being commemorated this year with the release of the film “Selma.” Regrettably, the film represents the march as many see it today, only as an act of political protest. But for my father Abraham Joshua Heschel and for many participants, the march was both an act of political protest and a profoundly religious moment: an extraordinary gathering of nuns, priests, rabbis, black and white, a range of political views, from all over the United States.”

What Selma meant to Jews like my Father
