Congregation Bet Ha'am
Each year the Dorothy Schwartz Forum brings people together with expert guides to grapple with a basic question. This year we’re asking … who is we?
The question ‘Who is we?’ is urgent and political: we the people … we hold these truths to be self evident … now who is we?”
But it is also timeless, and both smaller and larger than politics: we friends … we family … we who have suffered … we who breathe the air, bask in the sunshine, swim in the sea … every time we can stop and pay attention. We can say, wait, Who is we?”
We’ll practice noticing what links us: we’ll get to ask ourselves ‘Who is we?’ over and over again and seek out fresh ways of answering – so that maybe, when we go back out into our lives, we see ‘we’ a little more spaciously.
