The Jewish tradition teaches that at special moments in life the gates of heavens are open. I felt standing among these vulnerable, powerless immigrants crying for their daughters, husbands and sisters that the gates of heaven were open to their prayers.
It is still the case that less than 15 percent of immigration detentions are of people who pose a threat to public safety, the people ICE says it is prioritizing. The consequence for American families is devastating
We have prayed, fasted and advocated for reform for well over a decade. The notion that it is not a "good time" politically does not make sense to us.
In politics, once you take a stand on an issue, you better have a good reason to change your mind.

Lately, Florida headlines have been filled with conservative political leaders coming out in support of DREAMers. While what follows may be slightly confusing to some, and has even confused one of the country's top law firms hired to advise our state's flagship university, let's examine the issue.
Bill de Blasio has lifted the left and is a man to watch in 2014. I have a hunch that the next Democratic nominee for president will be watching him closely, too.
