Buddhism is about awakening, Islam is about surrendering one’s will to Allah, Christianity is about worshiping Christ. What is Judaism about?
Resistance. We are Yisrael, Godwrestlers, (Yisra/wrestle, El/God), iconoclasts called to prophetic rebellion against gods, kings, priests, and the powerful and to topple brutal systems of retributive justice and replace them with compassionate systems of distributive justice.
Judaism is an act of prophetic resistance for the sake of all the earth’s families (Genesis 12:3), or it is gutless conformity to tradition and a past that has lost its capacity to imagine holy futures.
