Nishma, Sh'ma December 2004

By Jill Jacobs, Jonathan Ariel, Marcelo Birmajer, Mark Sokoll

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2004

Ariel, Birmajer, Jacobs and Sokoll respond to the biblical text "And Yosef saw his brothers and he recognized them. And he made himself strange to them and spoke harshly to them....And Yosef recognized his brothers, but they did not recognize him." Their responses discuss the essence of diaspora as familial recognition across space and time; contemporary silence as a response to indifference and survival; the potential for transformation through dialogue and encounter; and the importance of creating settings for common experiences.
