God weeps when his children destroy each other. Sibling rivalry has been with us since Cain and Abel, and we will have no peace until we learn that we are loved beyond imagining – as are all God’s people. The tree of life is an ancient image of interconnection. The members of this suffering Pittsburgh synagogue […]
