Border Crossing

To say that Frume Sarah is rigid, predictable, and self-contained would be stating something so obvious that it would be a waste of space.

So what is Frume Sarah doing in a program that defines itself by attitudes such as the following:

A Rabbit Rabbi Without Borders places limited importance on boundary questions and realizes that they are personal rather than policy issues. We all need boundaries (even borders!), but they exist because of our need, not because of some absolute and independent necessity.

The first day of the seminar included multiple-layered reflections, a conversation with Dr. Gustav Niebuhr, text study, and food. My head is spinning. I am in awe of the depth of knowledge and passion of the other participants.

And am still wondering if I am ready to cross the boundaries that both restrain and comfort me…

    I really hope you are a “Rabbi” without borders and not a rabbit. Otherwise I have a lot more questions…

    Just for fun, go to your favorite restaurant and dare to order something off the menu other than the thing you always order when you go there. Baby steps, my friend!
