In this Rosh HaShanah address, Rabbi Artson dares us to dream big: personally, communally, and politically! In a world of rancor, hostility, and violence, we tend to fall in on ourselves, shrinking our vision and hiding behind walls. It is time to stand tall, to hope, to dream, and to act!

Rabbi Artson fields questions from the students of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies as the new academic year begins! Topics include: when you don’t want to be a rabbi, coping in a broken world, Rosh HaShana thoughts, spiritual work during the holidays, patrilineal and matrilineal descent, approaching God during the Days of Awe, Conservative Judaism and egalitarianism, and how to fight the urge to covet. What a session!

Rabbi Artson preaches that we are not isolated individuals, but rather are knitted together by our memories, which we retain and which make us who we are. Our pervasive memories ensure that our loved ones are part of our very breathe, and that we are never alone.

Listen to Rabbi Artson’s stirring Kol Nidrei reminder of who we are in our core. On Yom Kippur, we strip away our titles and our connections to stand, like angels, as individuals, as we were when we were babies, as we shall be at our death. We purify ourselves in our solitary uniqueness to better be able to re-enter the relationships that make life so rich.
