Coping with Complexity
Awareness of the wholeness in the Torah opens our eyes to the wholeness of the world.
Here we conclude the book of Numbers, B'midbar, "In the Wilderness." The People of Israel stands on the banks of the Jordan, in the final days of their wanderings. They yearn to enter Jerusalem, Yerushalayim--another word rooted in shalem, wholeness. Like them, we still need to gaze across the waters, to find our way, to move ever closer to justice and to peace.
