Stepping into a different realm for a few minutes

This morning I was introduced to a 5 minute video recorded by Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom talking about the New Antisemitism. At the end Rabbi Sacks makes a warning that I think is relevant in this time of the incidents of overt racism in the United States and elsewhere. I therefore offer this link, not only because as a proud person of Jewish heritage it speaks of things that have affected my family and myself, but because I think that it speaks to all of us:

After that I sought other words of wisdom from Rabbi Sacks and found this TED Talk from 2017 where he asserts that today's focus on the self is a major problem in society and that a simple shift to a focus on "us" and "we" and the "other" may be the cure:

If you have something constructive to offer in comment, whether you agree with Rabbi Sacks or not, I welcome the dialogue. If, on the other hand, you post comments of hatred to any person or group at all I will delete your comment. So just don't bother!
