For the first time in my life and in my rabbinate I feel compelled to speak directly and publicly about
God. While I’ve referenced God in almost every sermon I presume it would be difficult for you to know what I believe about God.

I had thought not to focus on the mosque controversy during these holidays, but we have been radicalized by the substance and tone of the debate. Underlying and barely masqueraded by the public vitriol ostensibly focused on the location and legality of Cordoba House is a poisonous attack on Muslims themselves. Since we Jews have suffered from venomous hatred and invidious allegations against us we speak from the truth of our experiences. We cannot stand on the sidelines.

Once we were comfortably Jewish searching for what it meant to be an American. Now we are comfortably American searching for what it means to be a Jew. Contemporary Jews feel less connection to a sense of Jewish kinship and less personal commitment to the Jewish people. Ensuring Jewish survival, once considered a collective sacred duty, is not any more. A Jewish future can no longer be ensured.
