“I am Jewish and I am American. I cannot divorce myself from the fact that the country that gave my family a future was built from slavery. I will continue to educate myself about interconnectedness to this land and its many peoples. As a rabbi, I will continue to raise awareness about mass incarceration and bail reform. If I am silent, I am complicit.”
RABBI MIRA RIVERA, “A Jewish Journey to Montgomery,” by Eleanor J. Bader, The Lilith Blog.
