If Not Now When – Reflections on the text from Pirkei Avot 1:14

Let’s dive deeper into the words of Mishneh Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers/Ancestors).  Hillel used to say:  “If I am not for myself, who will be for me?  And if I am for myself alone, then what am I?  And if not now, when.”
Rabbi Barbara Goldman-Wartell is in her fourteenth year serving as the Rabbi of Temple Concord in Binghamton, NY.  She has served other congregations in PA, VA and CA and worked for Jewish Federations and Jewish Community Centers in Jewish family education, Jewish education, Holocaust education and awareness, and community relations. In addition, she is the chair of the Children of Abraham of the Southern Tier Planning Group, has served on the Boards of the Broome Tioga NAACP, and the Southern Tier Aids Project, Institute for Jewish-Christian Understanding at Muhlenberg College and has continued her work locally, working to build coalitions and foster understanding and joint endeavors.
