My President made me cry. And feel. And commit even more. 36 rabbis so far. Let's keep going.

Since the end of Shabbat, 36  rabbis have signed onto the PICO Clergy Open Letter to President Obama calling for:

  1. Renewing the assault weapons ban
  2. Universal Background Checks

If your rabbi hasn't signed, please encourage her or him to consider adding their name. The letter is available here:

To add your signature, please contact PICO leader Pastor Michael McBride at

Ask your rabbi to consider signing this letter. At least one life depends on it. Jewish tradition teaches that saving one life is saving an entire world. Don't wait.

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.
