Second, my friend Celeste is in Israel. She will be thinking of me, especially when she visits Tzfat. I will be thinking of her, especially as i sing "Face of God."
(a learning i enjoyed earlier this week)
"No, the Exodus did not destroy evil in the world. What is did was set up an alternative conception of life. Were it not for the Exodus, humans would have reconciled themselves to the evils that exist in the world. The Exodus establishes the dream of perfection and thereby creates the tension that must exist until reality is redeemed. . . Where does Israel get the strength - the chutzpah - to go on believing in redemption in a world that knows mass hunger and political exile and boat people? How can Jews testify to hope and human value when they have been continuously persecuted, hated, dispelled, destroyed? Out of the memories of the Exodus!. . . "
