On Human Agency and Free Choice

EIKEV

On Being the Chosen People

The Israelites may assume that as God’s select, they are immune to punishment and entitled to a bounty of privileges. But God is no patron. On the contrary, with great privilege comes great condemnation. Arthur Hertzberg famously said that, “Chosen-ness is the inescapable discomfort caused by consciousness.”

DEVARIM

Every human being is inevitably left with a huge emptiness which is a vacuum of unanswered questions, fears, and doubts that come with the trials and tribulations of being human. How do we go on living and  find the strength to carry on? How do we make the lessons, the values, the inspirations of our individual and collective memories a part of who each of us is becoming, while at the same time finding our own voices of aspiration? We ask, “How can we hold these two intentions?”
