At 7:30 a.m., I pray with a man who renewed his family’s passports just in case they have to flee the country under the new administration.
At my 12 p.m. study group, someone tells me that, for the first time in eight years, he slept peacefully knowing the old administration is finally gone.
Then at 7:30 p.m., I meet with a woman who just returned from Washington, D.C., where she passionately marched against the new president.
What am I to do? How am I to react? Do I keep quiet, smile and tell everyone they’re right? (We rabbis are good at that!)
