Governor “Wrong” DeSantis emulates Pharaoh, not Moses
By Rabbi Barry Silver
We Jews know the evil of being urged to leave our homes by vicious enemies who falsely promised escape from the hell on earth they created for us, only to be led to our doom. In 1962, southern segregationists sent African Americans in reverse freedom rides to northern cities by bus with a one-way ticket to nowhere with false promises of great jobs and opportunities.
The Republican “Not See” Party threatens America as it pretends to “not see” that Trump’s “America First” slogan was first used by fascists and Nazi sympathizers such as Charles Lindbergh who sought to keep America out of WWII so Hitler could slaughter the Jews. They also choose to “not see” that “America First” is the American equivalent of “Deutschland Uber Alles”.
Legal complaints are stacking up against Florida’s 15-week abortion ban, all of them arguing that the law imposes a narrowly sectarian definition of when life begins upon other elements of the faith community that hold markedly different ideas about the matter.
Rabbi Barry is writing a book that will change the way you perceive Judaism, religion, faith, and spirituality.
"This approach could lead our people to not only be wandering Jews but wondering Jews, who filled with awe and wonder, could begin a wonderful new phase of religious evolution, infused with awe, science and radical amazement, replacing walls of religious ignorance, conflict and hate with bridges of reason, understanding and love."
