On the saddest day of the Jewish calendar, when we fast in remembrance of destruction and exile, we come together to mourn the brokenness of our society and our world. In response to rising antisemitism and systemic racism – we lament. In the wake of Supreme Court decisions eviscerating gun control, limiting environmental protections, and denying the right to reproductive freedom – we lament. In a time of hearts hardened to the migrant and stranger, those seeking to breathe free – we lament. In a world shattered by war and brutality, the threat of nuclear weapons and climate catastrophe – we lament. 

We come together to grieve, to resist, and to gather strength for the work of rebuilding all that is broken. On the day when, according to Jewish tradition, the Messiah will be born, we also come together to imagine another world, and to learn from those whose work for racial and economic justice is at the forefront of that reimagining.
