“We Asked Rabbis About Their Holiday Sermons. Here’s What 65 of Them Planned to Say” by.Jodi Rudoren, Editor-in -Chief, The Forward
An excerpt from this article in which Rabbi Faith Joy Dantowitz is quoted!
The middah, or Jewish virtue, of anger — ka’as — is one with which we all struggle. How do we respond when we’re angry? What do we do when we feel powerless?
This Rosh Hashanah morning, we will take a closer look at women, anger and power. The overarching theme of anger applies to all of us, and we will explore it through the particular lens of women’s experiences.
The Exodus is the seminal story of the Jewish people. The two dominant personalities referenced are Moses and God. But, before our ancestors could reach the Sea of Reeds, five women turned their frustration, anger, lack of agency into powerful actions yielding productive outcomes.
