Tzedakah, one of three practices marked by the sounding of the shofar during Jewish new year observances, means "righteous behavior." Tzedakah is closely associated with charitable giving and philanthropy, however, the concept is also synonymous with justice. Our capacity to be both generous, but also to take action to make right, to repair what has been harmed, and to fight for the safety and liberation of all people is understood as a necessary final step to resolve our efforts in our larger process of atonement. What action are you taking this week to mend a relationship rupture, to be generous with your energy where you have privilege, or to fight for the wellness and joy of all beings?

I love you already.
