How do the Three Tenets inform your social engagement?
The essence of Deep Ecumenism, one of Yerusha's core values, is directly aligned with the first tenet of Not-Knowing. Reb Zalman, one of the foundational thinker-practitioners of this theology, once said "doubt scrapes away the barnacles of belief." He taught us that the truest act of faith is to engage in doubt and brave exploration of the unknown, fully accepting that however we emerge on the other side of this exploration is exactly who we are meant to be. Deep Ecumenism requires the practitioner to engage with our partners of other faiths in truth, honesty, and equality, experiencing what they experience without judgement, ultimately discovering our similarities and (perhaps more importantly) celebrating our differences.
