Everybody has an opinion on whether politics should be brought to the pulpit, but according to Rabbi Jacobs, this debate was settled centuries ago. In this episode of On the Other Hand, Rabbi Jacobs discusses haftarot – what they are, why we read them, and what they have to say about politics.

    Thank you for this powerful message. I'm in the process of converting to Judaism (Aug. 29th is actual ceremony). What you said today is the reason I love Judaism so much. It is so much more than a religion. It is a way of life, an action, my reason for being.

    Cannot think of a better way foment discord and tear a Temple into warring factions than to bring politics to the pulpit.
