Days of Fear, Days of Love

fdb6bf41ace6004aef23b7c67553d766You must know that there is fear, and there is fear:  there is warranted fear and senseless fear.  Then there is trust and there is naiveté.

Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzato, 18th Century kabbalist

We have nothing to fear but fear itself.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

As we approach Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the days of fear and the days of love, we should remind ourselves that the real dangers we face are not from the Ayatollah, not from Vladimir Putin, not from Donald Trump, and not from Hillary Clinton.

The greatest dangers that we face are from our own bitterness, our own complacency, our own pettiness, and our own resistance to challenging ourselves to learn, to grow, and to bring the spirit of God into our world.
