Balanced Like the Trees

Rabbi Isaiah Rothstien, Jewish&, 01/28/2015

Moshe was shown the tree, the symbol of steadfast balance of sun and water, and the waters sweetened (Exodus 15:25). Reminding the world yet again, that balance can be achieved, and that prejudice, enslavement and human corruption will inevitably crumble.

We Need More than a Sneeze

Rabbi Isaiah Rothstien, Jewish&, 12/31/2014
