People Can Change

Snap Judgment released a podcast titled “The Rabbi and the KKK”. I don’t want give away the whole true story, but a Jewish family moved into a new neighborhood, and was verbally threatened by a Ku Klux Klan (KKK) group. The father of the home was also a Rabbi. He took it upon himself to frequently call a KKK member named Larry Trap and ask him over voicemail why he did the terrifying things he did.

“I want to get out of what I’m doing but I don’t know how” Larry, the KKK member to the Rabbi.

My whole point in posting this particular podcast is to show that despite our current political climate, and with a resurgence of the KKK, is it is possible for people to change both their minds and actions to choose love. I am hoping that this podcast inspires others to communicate with and know their neighbors, be open minded, and to not be discouraged.
