As we write this article, only a few hours have passed since the conclusion of the Consultation on Conscience followed by the URJ Commission on Social Action meeting. For three days, we joined together with 800 Jews in Arlington, VA, and then Washington DC, to learn, pray, lobby, and most of all dream about the type of world that our Jewish values demand that we create.
We are inspired after having heard remarkable political and moral leaders speak of the pressing issues of our times.
We are energized. We are hopeful. And as an entire conference, we are ready to work.
