Throwing Shade

“These are not dark times. These are pale times. These are pallid, wan and bloodless moments when we must love one another intensely and fiercely.” (Rabbi Elliot Kukla)

Rabbi Kerry Chaplin leads an important conversation on race, language, and metaphor in our Hanukkah story. Why is light equated with good and dark with evil? What is our language saying, what does it say about us, and how can our light and love warm our world in these pale times?
