Through stories at once poetic and poignant, There Is Nothing So Whole as a Broken Heart offers a powerful elixir for all who rebel against systemic violence and injustice. The contemporary renewal of Jewish anarchism draws on a history of antisemitism, enslavement, displacement, white supremacy, and genocide as well as ancestral resistance, strength, imagination, and humour - all qualities, and wisdom, sorely needed today. These essays, many written from feministic and queer perspectives, journey into ancestral and contemporary trauma in ways that are humanising and healing. They build bridges from bittersweet grief to rebellion and joy. Through concrete illustrations of how Jewish anarchists imaginatively create their own ritual, cultural, and political practices, they clearly illuminate the path toward mending ourselves and the world.
