Not content to be bystanders

Check out this article in the New York Times. A priest and nun are giving shelter and aid to families of undocumented workers in a meat processing factory in Iowa who have been arrested by ICE. Both are receiving hate mail. Also check out the Pyramid of Hate, which shows how small acts can lead to, ultimately, to genocide. http://www.adl.org/education/courttv/pyramid_of_hate.pdf

Shabbot dinner last night was one of the most moving things I ever experienced. Thank you.
