Resmaa and Rambam: Help Us Return
The work to dismantle white supremacy is multifaceted. Many people ask, “What can I do to make a difference?” This High Holiday season, Dr. Koach Baruch Frazier, RRC ’24, teaches that we must not neglect the internal-facing work that is necessary to break the psychological and emotional chains that keep us distant from each other. This video explores how the teachings of both Maimonides and Resmaa Menakem can help us return to our best selves through teshuvah and through building resilience in the face of trauma.
In order to support Jewish communities exploring new models of High Holidays programming this year, we at Reconstructing Judaism are pleased to make this video available to you, along with host of other resources such as original music, creative liturgical offerings and much more: https://www.reconstructingjudaism.org/highholidays2020
