As readers of these pages likely know, my high school and college (and years beyond that) pal Rabbi Jack Moline serves as Vice-President of Telecommunications for Elisberg Industries on our corporate board. When not occupied with his duties here, he he helps make the world a better place as president of the Interfaith Alliance in Washington, D.C.
Perhaps it is his years as a Chicago Cubs fan and Northwestern athletic program that has helped inform his deep understanding of the less-fortunate and center his life with compassion to others, not to mention pure decency, and I would suspect too that his many decades of biblical studies and ministering to those in need has helped along the way.
While I've written about Jack here periodically, and even posted a few swell photos of this good soul, I haven't presented him in action.
Here he is on Monday speaking at the National Cathedral with other religious leaders, as they honor the memories of those lost in mass gun violence in Las Vegas. His words putting religion, humanity and politics in perspective is pointed, brief and moving. It's just a minute long. And well-worth watching -- if only to hear a rabbi speak for only a minute...
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
