American Orthodox rabbi. I for one
can’t wait to read about MaNishtana’s
experience. With the growing number
of Jews of color in the U.S. (estimated
at 12-15% by a University of San
Francisco analysis), it is ever more
important for us to become aware of
our brothers’ and sisters’ experiences in
the community. Taking pride in being a welcoming
congregation as we return to our building, Temple Solel
wants to be sensitive to the range of
Jewish identities.

Our June 15 meeting will discuss The
Light of Days: The Untold Story of
Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s
Ghettos by Judy Batalion. This book
chronicles the experiences of several
heroic Polish Jewish women who
actively participated in the resistance
against the Nazis and follows them
during the wartime period and
afterwards. The reviews are universally
raves. We will need a leader; if you have not tried it

before, I will be glad to give
encouragement and pointers.

Our discussion on July 20 will be My
Russian Grandmother and Her

Shalev, who wrote A Pigeon and a Boy.
While a memoir, it is on the light side.

When I gaze at this

to me. I see two
spirals of energy
spinning around each
other, similar to DNA.
The first spiral rises up
from Earth. It carries
the active will of God
—the desire for victory and strength. The second spiral
flows down from Heaven. It carries the passive will of God
—the desire for understanding and grace. As these spirals
spin around each other, they intersect repeatedly, and
thereby maintain stability and balance in the world.

Meditating on the Tree of Life gives me hope. I see that
despite our differences, all beings share the same inner
“tree.” We all possess a flow system that draws energy
into and through us. The Torah calls it “the tree of living
forever” (Genesis 3:22). At our core, we are one.

In next month’s Pathfinder, we will design a new mystical
symbol together. Torah Study meets virtually every
Saturday morning at 9:00 am. See eNUZ for Zoom link
