The Rabbinical Alliance of America (Igud HaRabbonim), representing over 950 American rabbis, publicly corrects United States House of Representative Rashida Tlaib’s inaccurate comparison of Israel to United States segregation. Representative Tlaib stated that “there is continued dehumanization and racist policies by the State of Israel that violate international human rights, but also violate my core values of who I am as an American.” Tlaib’s comments were published in an interview this past Saturday by Jacobin, a Democratic Socialist magazine based in New York that offers leftist perspectives on American politics.

The word t’hilim is the same lashon as the words “tahel or” (“flash forth light”) (Iyov 41:10), because in T’hilim there is only a Great Light. There is no power for din [judgment] to be m’katreig [prosecute]; there is pure rachamim [compassion] and it “sweetens” everything. Therefore, the songs of David HaMelech are called t’hilim, through which it’s possible to work wonders, and there is found no Satan and no bad mishap” (Noam Elimelech, Likutei Shoshanah).
