Vision in the Midst of Crisis

“In the Kabbalistic telling, creation begins with a shattering that releases something sacred,” says Rabbi Shira Gluck. “Brokenness is at the very root of being. On this Shabbat Chazon — the Shabbat of vision — which punctuates a period of destruction and mourning, we can choose to see a crisis as a breaking point or as a breakthrough. All change brings some kind of loss, but loss and growth walk hand-in-hand.”
