I write you as your rabbi in a time of racial turmoil. If we were able to gather physically, I would call on us to gather in our building to hold a community meeting and plan our involvement as a force for good at this time. I would join with others to stand up and support in person all peaceful voices for racial justice in America. I would lead any who would follow to gather with others in our area in common cause. I am frustrated that this is not possible at this time.
I recognize that many say this is "too little." Please know, this is not all I do. This is not all you should do. This note is just about this note: I will not attend a rally right now, and I hear the cry of prophecy in the wind.
Rabbi Robert L. Tobin
