Reply To: What is one tangible way that you plan to exhibit Hebraic leadership in your own neighborhood after taking this course?

Madeleine, I think that’s a great example. There is sooooo much in the Old Testament, and in the New, about caring for the foreigner in need. Being part Syrian, I am mortified by what has happened to the Syrian people lately. But what is also troubling is not only that people lack empathy but that they have solid antipathy toward people who are suffering the most, wanting to bar them from entry entirely, regardless of safety precautions. This saddens me. But like you were discussing, I can’t let myself off the hook for having an empathetic position. Perhaps I too need to go to a local aid organization and personally, tangibly help.
