Yom HaZikaron/Yom HaAtzmaut 5781: Recognizing, Honoring and Cultivating Israel’s “Radical Otheness.”

Posted by Yiscah Smith on April 12, 2021
Topics: Yom Hazikaron, Pardes from Jerusalem, Yom Ha'atzmaut

A teaching from Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo addressing Israel’s uniqueness among the global community. He shares his thoughts on the paradox of Israel’s reality: as long as it insists on its vocation of uniqueness, it will enjoy security and undoubtedly be victorious.

This podcast is sponsored by Zara 4.5, Jules Scarlett 2.5, and their parents Sacha Litman and Rochelle Behrens in memory of their grandfather, Jack T. Litman, z”l on his 11th Yahrzeit. His only regret was to not have had the opportunity to meet his grandchildren.
