Freedom Corner

There was a great sadness and huge sense of frustration speaking about the unfair systems of our democratic society at last night’s rally at Freedom Corner in the Hill District.

Walking up there made me pine for the lost vibrant Jewish community that was once an active part of the Hill District landscape and that brings me to our fast day tomorrow.

Let us utilize the saddest point in the Jewish year to not only mourn the fall of the Temple but also to assess and commit to our collective responsibility to achieving redemption through personal actions that alleviate all forms of plight.
