Teaching & Learning from the Heart in Troubled Times

Mar 23, 2020-- "The current moment calls for moral ferocity. We should not sleep well at night when we know others are suffering. We need to raise our voices with clarity and channel our anger into protest and resistance. Ferocity itself, though, holds danger. Let's not forget that some of the worst perpetrators of evil have often claimed to act in the name of the good, or God, or the national interest, or a future utopia. By claiming the moral high ground, and labeling our opponents misguided, we run the risk of doing great harm in the name of good. I suggest that we balance our moral ferocity with humility and tenderness." Rabbi Ariel Burger, an author, artist and long-time student and friend of Elie Wiesel shares more in this timely essay.
