Cuba trip provides essential lesson

RABBI JEREMY SCHNEIDER | Posted: Wednesday, March 23, 2016 10:00 am

Rabbi Jeremy Schneider of Temple Kol Ami recently returned from a mission to Cuba with his synagogue; here are his reflections about the trip, written on the plane making the journey back from Havana to Phoenix via Miami. 

We often quote the teaching from the Talmud that “all Jews are responsible one for the other.” It’s at the core of Jewish social ethics. But why are we all responsible for each other? I think that it’s hard, in this day and age, to remember that we Jews really are all part of one giant family. Temple Kol Ami’s Mission to Cuba helped to remind me (and the 29 others who joined me) of this essential lesson.
