Emma's Hand

Who Will Be Our Deborah Now?

A year ago I was studying the Book of Judges with Rabbi Bronwen Mullin in the Artist’s Beit Midrash at my shul, Town & Village Synagogue.

A year ago our media feed was filled with the news of yet another mass killing, this one dubbed the Parkland Shooting.

A year ago a voice arose from the blood soaking into the foundations of our nation calling us all out on our BS: Emma Gonzalez

I was profoundly struck by the connection I saw between Deborah Lapidot and Emma Gonzalez – from that intricate interlacing of events and text-study came this poem.
