We live in a moment of political uncertainty and, for many of us, intensified For both veteran and new activists, returning to Torah as a grounding center can provide inspiration, spiritual rejuvenation, and fruitful reflection. Many of the most pressing issues we face today begin with values questions, and having that conversation with our ancestors through Jewish texts across the centuries can help us clarify and articulate our own values; surprise us with new, valuable insights; and teach us the crucial skill of facing and engaging with challenging perspectives.
