We live in a time of binaries: Liberal or conservative. Black or white. Pro- or anti-. Our certainty about our own beliefs and worldviews offers what feels like clarity, even safety… but relationships and communities grow fractured when we hold to our own beliefs too tightly. There is power and potential in leaning toward people and things we don’t understand; and promise in learning to live in the complexity when different ideas and identities converge. How can we hold multiple truths while still acting with integrity? How can we stay in relationships when it is more comfortable to move away? What answers does the Jewish tradition offer us?
