I didn't have a chance to post this link yesterday, and the High Holy Days are officially over now, but you can still read my thoughts about Days of Awe over at CommonDreams.

Thanks for the great article, Gayle!

I may not be a Jew, but I've always believed that what you've written should be what Judaism should be about, instead of the blind support of the neocon/Bush/Sharon policies that it has turned into.

I am linking the article to my own blog as well for even more people to read. Thanks again.

Thanks so much, Rachel! I really appreciate your kind words.

I can understand where you're coming from, re blind support of necon/Bush/Sharon policies, but I honestly don't think that's what Judaism has become--at least not the Judaism I am privy to (which, I admit, is a very liberal swath.) Most Jews I know are not fans of Sharon; most are horrified by the situation in Palestine. Judaism has so much peace and social justice woven into its core. I think just as Bush does not represent true Christianity--just an extreme slice of it--Sharon et al do not represent true Judaism, which is full of beauty and social responsibility.
