Sermon from Beth Am’s Juneteenth Shabbat

A drawing from my comic Repentance and Reparations

Women are the real experts on women’s rights, black activists are experts on anti-black racism, and any attempt to solve a social problem must be shaped and led by those affected.

Massive harm created the current disparities in our economy. Racism and white supremacy have shaped who has access to wealth. The practice of Teshuvah offers us clues and a framework for what it looks like to work towards repair and return.

I didn’t understand how my privilege and opportunities were connected to the poverty and violence I saw locally and globally.
