Rabbis for Human Rights

Last night was an event at Jerry and Alicia Ostricker's home for Rabbis for Human Rights. Rabbi Brian Walt spoke beautifully of Yakov and Esav's reunion and Arik Aschermann told stories of driving his Honda Civic in the territories, protesting abuses by the IDF and planting trees. Congressman Rush Holt was there and I had the opporunity to dare him to wear Ruth Goldston's button "Proud Liberal with Moral Values" - he took the button, but placed it in his pocket.
