The ongoing destruction of Earth’s natural systems is the result of decisions, made daily, by billions of people. These decisions are voluntary and involuntary at once, collective and personal. The question must be asked: what is driving our actions? How do we reignite and reimagine a spiritual relationship with this beautiful planet we call home? From traditions around the world, and from within ourselves, how might we create different narratives that honor Nature and acknowledge the sacred? Two indigenous leaders – Nainoa Thompson and Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq (Uncle) – have both been... Read more about The Land and the Waters are Speaking

A Compassionate Response: What it Means to be a NeighborFather Joseph Cheah
University of Saint Joseph
The word compassion comes from the Hebrew word rehem, which means a mother’s womb. To be compassionate is to have a deep feeling a woman has for the child that comes forth from her womb. In the parable of the Good Samaritan, it was the Good Samaritan who exemplifies this sort of compassion by offering liberating assistance to the half-death man lying on the...

African Americans have a unique story in the United States. All other non-indigenous communities came to the New World willingly to seek a better life, to escape an old life, or to purchase their way forward through indentured servitude. African slaves, however, were abducted and enslaved, being brought to America against their will. African Americans carry with them this history of injustice, while carving their own way through ongoing inequality, discrimination, and opportunity. This is a truly American experience and story.
Relations between African American Christians and Muslims is also... Read more about 2019 Luce-Hartford Conference in Christian-Muslim Relations

Even though many recent Israeli government policies are challenging to Reform Jews in North America, we must double down on deepening our connections to our Jewish State. How do we strongly advocate for a Jewish-Democratic state, that promotes equal rights, pluralism, and builds the infrastructure of peace while helping our people fall in love with Israel? That’s the challenge and great opportunity for our movement.
Join Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President of the Union for Reform Judaism for our Feinberg Lecture.
