The Hebrew calendar reflects the Jewish belief that human liberation comes before divine revelation. In the spring, we celebrated Passover commemorating the biblical account of the liberation from bondage.

That year it was a Tuesday. June 6. My father turned on the radio that morning, as usual. This time, we heard: “Under the command of Gen. Eisenhower, Allied naval forces, supported by strong air forces, began landing Allied armies this morning on the northern coast of France.” D-Day. “The Longest Day.” A hinge of…

An American high school has backtracked after it banned a student from quoting a Bible verse at a graduation ceremony. Genesis Feliciano wanted to quote Jeremiah 29:11: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a…
