from Masorti - Conversion Bill Update - and thank you

the masorti (conservative) movement in israel - promoting religious pluralism and building community through inclusive, traditional, egalitarian Judaism
The situation with regard to the Conversion Bill looks very encouraging. I hesitate to say it is totally and completely off the table for this session only because I know there are still some meetings taking place and I know that MK David Rotem and his allies would attempt to move the bill forward if they saw the slightest chance for success.
Your efforts in all of this were extremely important. Through our website link alone we know of 23,000 emails that went to Prime Minister Netanyahu and we understand that the office of the Prime Minister, in total, received in excess of 50,000 emails.
I think it looks very good, but we are staying alert. Again, thank you.

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
