Rabbi Michael Lerner’s Tikkun Magazine held a gala celebration of its 25th anniversary and honored Judge Richard Goldstone, author of the UN’s Gaza human rights report, on March 14th at UC Berkeley. Tikkun bestowed the the award on Goldstone and other distinguished Muslim, Hispanic and Jewish human rights activists. Among them were Naomi Newman, founder of the Traveling Jewish Theater and Hon. Raul Grijalva.
Tikkun has played an extraordinary role during its lifetime in the cultural, political and intellectual life of American Jewry. I join in celebrating its important achievements.
I apologize for not getting word of this important event to my readers before it happened. I’m certain it was well-attended and I would’ve love to have been there. Unfortunately, I’ve been a bit distracted by the Rachel Neuwirth libel trial which gets underway in a few days.
