Purim and the Fight Against Hate
Purim, upcoming this week, is described as “a thankful and joyous affirmation of Jewish survival against all odds” according to one internet source (http://www.reformjudaism.org/jewish-holidays/purim), where one can find out more about the holiday.
Purim is especially important this year because of rampant Anti-Semitism and other forms of hate currently being spewed throughout our society: in politics, on college campuses, and around the world.
This week, please consider ways in which you too can advocate against hate in its various insidious forms. One way is via the Anti-Defamation League’s website (http://www.adl.org/) where I went this morning to do my part to help change the world.
