30th Anniversary Celebration and Conference
Did you know Tikkun is celebrating its 30th year? Amazing, right? We hope you will consider joining us at the event; Saturday, November 12th will be a full day event (with morning spiritual practices available for those who are interested) where we will explore “What’s Next?” after the presidential election. This is a critical time for progressives in this country and we need to get organized. On Sunday, November 13th we will give out the Tikkun Award to amazing people (like director Oliver Stone, singer and songwriter Holly Near and Clayborne Carson and many others) who have significantly contributed to transforming our world.
Wow, what a month it's been! As you may be aware, Rabbi Lerner was invited to speak at Muhammed Ali's memorial, and boy did he speak! As can be expected from Rabbi Lerner, he spoke prophetic truth to those in power, many of whom were in the audience at the memorial. Many people who saw his talk commented that this was the first time in their lives they have seen someone speak such truth on tv. It was certainly a powerful moment.
A transcript of Rabbi Lerner's speech is below. To see him speak and to hear about his experiences, please see our post here. Master of compassion, God of compassion, send your blessings to Muhammad Ali, send your blessings to all who mourn for him, and send your blessings for all the millions and millions of people who mourn for him all over this planet. I come here speaking as a representative of American Jews — and to say that American Jews played an important role in solidarity with African-American struggles in this country and that we today stand in solidarity with the Islamic community in country and all around the world. [applause]
We will not tolerate politicians or anyone else putting down Muslims and blaming Muslims for a few people [applause].We know what it’s like to be demeaned.
