Rabbi Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer on “Jewish Heresies, Then and Now”Posted: August 18, 2011
I encourage you to read this piece for HuffPo written by my teacher, friend and colleague Rabbi Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer. In it, she argues eloquently for making a place in the Jewish communal conversation for all – including those “who no longer define themselves as Zionist.”
As a fellow Reconstructionist, I can only offer a heartfelt “Amen” to her concluding sentence:
I am grateful to be part of a Jewish movement that values respectful and compassionate Jewish peoplehood, that understands beliefs as bets on the future and that welcomes new voices, even those that make others uncomfortable — perhaps especially those.
