What does the Rainbow symbol mean in your life?
Is there a time that a rainbow lifted your spirits to a moment of enchantment or transcendence?
Here’s my latest:
The day our first granddaughter came home from the hospital, a rainbow appeared in the sky over her backyard. Look closely and you can see it.
Here’s one from a friend, Rabbi Sue Morningstar, taken in Canyonville, Oregon:

Looks like my friends are posting photos of rainbows lately. Here’s one in South Africa from Rabbi Shai Gluskin: https://www.instagram.com/p/BVGAPfnhIWm/?taken-by=shaigluskin
A rainbow is a natural demonstration that light contains within itself a diversity of colors. We often think of light as a single color, but in actuality it is the full spectrum from violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, to brown. Personally, I like to think of light as G-d saying “celebrate the diversity wherever you see it – in cultures, races, religions, and even in politics.”
I hope that message is coming through on this page, for our Jewish community, our country, our world. It is such an important idea right now!
