This is my first post on this site. I wanted to respond to one sentence in this article:
“Schulman’s own Jewishness dropped right away when she saw what Palestinians were experiencing.”
I’m not sure what that means. For me, my Jewish values, as they were taught to me (an obligation to do my part to heal the world, a culture that encourages questioning and debate), are precisely what prompt me to question the status quo and to stand up against inequality.
Had I crafted this sentence, I would have written,
” Schulman’s own Jewishness WAS TRIGGERED when she saw what Palestinians were experiencing.”
