ARTICLE On Cultivating Empathy: A Text Study

“The moment of encountering another human being, who lo and behold suffers in the same way I do, has the same longings and yearnings as I do, is the most powerful way we have to interrupt and overcome idolatry and bigotry and the persistent insistence on making other people, other.” — Rabbi Shai Held

As part of a panel titled “Jewish Paths to Wisdom,” Rabbi Shai Held, 2011 Covenant Award Recipient, Rosh Yeshiva and Chair in Jewish Thought at Mechon Hadar, leads the audience in a text study from the Book of Exodus.
