It’s easy to notice all the struggles in your life. Don’t forget to take time to honor how far you’ve come, and to see the joys, the love, the connections. ❤️ Shabbat Shalom.

Also, I think visitor photography should be banned at any genocide history site, but that’s just me. There ain’t no reason you need to be posting cutesie selfies at Auschwitz OR Monticello.

CN: Auschwitz Museum; casual antisemitism . . . For anyone horrified at the lack of basic decency these jokers have for the victims and survivors of the Shoah, you should remember that this apathy toward genocide is common in the USA. Folks get married at plantations, FFS.

An impeachment article should be pretty easy to draw up this morning. Even easier to vote on. Pass a resolution inquiry by the full House today and subpoena the whistleblower. If WH claims privilege, ask for emergency hearing in federal court on the basis of national security.

(“Israel” in the above text refers to the people Israel, aka the Jewish people—not the modern nation-state established in 1948, almost 1500 years after the Talmud was redacted in what’s now Iraq.)

Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 97b Rab said: All the predestined dates [for redemption] have passed, and the matter [now] depends only on repentance and good deeds... R. Eliezer said: if Israel repent, they will be redeemed; if not, they will not be redeemed.

Choni said to him, 'Do you really believe you'll live another seventy years?' The man answered, ‘I found this world provided with carob trees, and as my ancestors planted them for me, so I too plant them for my descendants.'

Talmud Taanit 23a One day as [a man named] Choni was walking along he saw a man planting a carob tree. Choni asked him, 'How many years will it take until it will bear fruit?' He said to him, 'Not for 70 years.' (Cot’d)

Then the wrath of God will be upon you; God will stop up the heavens, and there will be no rain, and the Earth will not give its produce; and you will speedily be evicted from the good land that God is giving you..."

Deut 11:13-17 ...if you listen to my commandments...to love the God, to serve God with all your heart and all your soul, then... you will eat and be satisfied. [BUT!] be careful, lest your heart be seduced, and you turn away, and serve other gods, and worship them.... (cot’d)

Some Torah in honor of the . 1/x God, showing Adam around Eden: “Behold my works, how pleasant & beautiful they are..! Be aware & don’t ruin or destroy my world, for if you ruin it, there is no one to come and fix it up after you.” Midrash Ecclesiastes Rabba 7:20

As summaries go, "Trump offered a foreign leader $250 million in aid in exchange for dirt on Joe Biden" is pretty simple and compelling.

I'm shocked, I say, shocked. 😑 Raise your hand if you honestly didn't know there was racial bias built into standardized testing.
