Now, it seems more a thing to show we are open to “the other”. But I would like to know, what does the Synagogue benefit by having a Rainbow Kabbalat Shabbat? Being open to the other would also mean opening our Synagogue to our fellow Jews even if they practice a different interpretation of the law and come from all of Scandinavia for a football tournament. We learn that the destruction of our Temple in Jerusalem, was because of “hatred without reason beetween ourselves” we should look into being united, we learned it from the tribes of Israel who joined all together when entering the Land of Canaan, a good lesson for our leaders even today.
The next post will be from my new job as Spiritual Leader of the Jewish Community in Medellín. I am really looking forward to it.
This is Medellin, Colombia. Life here will be the traditional one, I grew up with. And especially, freedom to wear my jewishness on my head or my breast without fear.
