part of it necessarily that i'm a little bit and aware of a lot of things going on in the middle east and it's easy to lose track. if you have to tell someone who is in a coma for the last 25 years or clinic become a two year-old. what is the problem there. at the cannot resolve things. we have to side struggling with each other. both sides are connected to a particular historical narrative to says we have the wreck is victims and the other guy is evil other. and we want to make peace in the middle east the first thing to do is change that narrative to both sides can hear the other side story and recognizable and open-heart and generous way that the other guys have a point and both sides of the narrative and that both sides has been cruel and unusual to each other where the disbelief on each side? the tradition had done

this point. orr's religious teaching oral the above? they're both faced with post-traumatic stress disorder. both sides and victims in case that some of the 1700 years and pushed around and killed and then the manifesting in the holocaust. or one every three jews was a lot of time was murdered. and others in and and afterwards they went to her engine homeland palestine and or palestinians there in the creek state of israel and 800,000 palestinians who now grown to 4 million or pushed out of israel

and so the of the huge, also. and to side with, as and unable to see anything with their own pain. tell me what your community sense to you of rabbi says that we have to give a little bit to at the truth of the matter is we see a very significant section of american jews. it is in israel's best interest to make peace with palestinians. our synagogue as a piece perspective and in fact on our high holidays for coming up we celebrate the part of jewish tradition that affirms a path of peace and social justice and healing that transformation that is in your synagogue but what about other jews and
8:06 am
rabbis who are your colleagues at other synagogues a lot of my colleagues say that keeping up with a right behind you but turns out there miles behind me and often with the say to me is look we do not dare say publicly but we agree with you privately but we cannot hear it say it publicly because both wealthy people and our conversation of the greatest power in our congregation are likely to find a sense of i am pro israel. i believe the best path for israel is the path of open hearted reconciliation and compassion toward the other. in fact one same as the best path for israel is take our jewish tradition more seriously because we've never been the cockers and the one to believe and armies and power and when you promise to believe in love and kindness and generosity. that's the essence,
8:07 am
been teaching at the past several thousand years. and suddenly because of the drama the we went through the will no longer believe in that. was not giving are bending enough and you're open. and within that your objective is something you own your own heart. but seem secure open in one the best thing happen and when people stop fighting already and the question is are the jews spending enough? is israel pending enough? a in a plane e decide because both sides have made terrible mistakes. the next step that israel has former power and the palestinians. with the third strongest army and emerald in israel and we have because my own son served in the israeli army until we committed to israel's survival and strength. but the way we get survival and strength in this. it is to open
8:08 am
heart and generosity he started this magazine and started that in 1986 and is the voice of jewish liberals to say and " is to heal and repair the world. you're in berkeley. this problem is happening all the way over in the middle east. how're you doing? we're doing pretty well. we've moved discussion the middle east and there is a palestinian people to a point where even the government has to the knowledge that there is going to be a palestinian state. and the course of art since 1986 we've played a big role in changing the discourse which has a big impact on changing here we are close to a presidential election only two months away and a lot of people tell you politically you cannot
8:09 am
discuss this openly you are right. that's because both sides feel their source of manhattan is coming from people who want only one side and another for the rest of us in such as tear him berkeley and not just a bay area but all over the country have come to understand that our well-being depends on the well-being of the palestinian people your high holy days coming up with the starting on sunday the 16th. and so here's my question. you say that this is really worked into the services and which are saying and what you're promoting with a social justice oriented and head of that shalom center coming out with me. so, after the service we're going to be picketing all local bank the wells fargo bank
8:10 am
is representative of the ways that the banks have been insensitive toward the needs of the poor and scoring a lot of people had in the mortgage policies and we're very social justice oriented. and we also deeply spiritual oriented with the traditional service in that respect but amigo de into what it really means and the text itself a sense as a key ikea that the human transformation of the world and it says that our task is to overcome the condemns of arrogance on the planet and so this is not something that imposed from a berkeley consciousness the score to the jewish tradition and that is why were inviting as many people want different kind of holiday and see many bay area jews not turned off to their dubious some some very different kind of genius out here read your same period and into center to the
