The prophet Jeremiah told the weary and heart-broken exiles of Jerusalem that they should “seek the peace of the city.” Rabbis, along with faith leaders of every tradition, teach that a broken society is one in which we fail to take care of others. This book asks some very hard questions of America in the midst of a Gun Violence epidemic, and presents a passionate, hopeful, healing response to a moment of national pain and fragility. The rabbis in this collection ask: How many innocent deaths will it take for our elected officials to respond with moral conviction? How long must America wait to acknowledge that we lose 30+ American lives to Gun Violence every day, scarring our national life? How many tears must be shed? Learn, connect, and be inspired with the voices of today's rabbinic leaders.

Please God, watch over every child, all of us. Enough violence. Enough! We're just so broken with all of this. People, call the news station in your city right now. Call your leaders right now. Pray. Scream. Hug each other. Stop your hopelessness. The time to act as a noble human family is now. If you haven't been crying over dead children when they seem 'far away,' please realize that distance is an illusion. Act now. If you don't, Pesach has no liberation to offer.

There is mourning and magic in the air. A roasted egg reminds us of the Temple's destruction, and Miriam's and Elijah's cups indicate our hope in the future, a future of peace throughout this fragile world of ours. We are, and will ever be, a People who know pain and redemption. Our journey draws from the former and demands nothing less than the latter. And so we say this year, louder than last: LeShanah HaBa'ah BiYerushalayim! Next year in Jerusalem!
