During this holiday of Sukkot, aka the Feast of Tabernacles, or Booths, the verse proclaiming this holiday as one of inclusion for all nations, and that inclusion which happened 1000 years ago in Islamic Spain, seems especially important to remember, today.
Remember, if we did it before, we can do it again! We go farthest fastest by working together, right?
“Of course, right!”
Libraries are one of the greatest legacies of the Convivencia (remember that cooperation, in Muslim Spain, of Jewish, Christian and Islamic scholars, that gave Europe books again?), and one of the key parts of Phase I of the Four Freedoms movement.

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free copies at: https://archive.org/details/StayedOnF…)
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.
Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
