At a time when politicians and public figures have proposed interning Muslims, it is all the more troubling that the UC Regents are using a statement against intolerance as an attempt to keep UC campuses free of debate critical of Israeli policies regardless of the threats it poses to First Amendment Rights and scholarship.

Rabbi Joshua M. Davidson | Posted 06.27.2015 | Religion

Shfokh hamatkha reminds me to pay attention to the hate that exists in the world, against us, and against others, but because it is said as we open the door for Elijah, it reminds me not to let the fear that hate evokes cloud our vision of what we are called to do to redeem the world.
