Meet the late Sarah Horowitz, child of political activist David Horowitz, who managed to fuse the painful lessons of her father’s life with a mystical Judaism to complete the task he never could: showing how the Left could save itself from...

onto AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US
I ran across an article that was very condemning of Van Jones. He is a a man I do admire so far. I followed that article to the source to learn where it came from. Then I followed up to see who funded the site. I then went on to read several articles about a man named David Horowitz. Ironically I began to read how this man had been most of his life openly and actively what he accused Van Jones of being and then he changed his mind. Then there was a mention of a one time estranged daughter he wrote a book about who was firmly opposite of what her father had become and was a very completely committed progressive. I followed that link as well and found this very heart touching summary of what I feel is a truth. I think I may be buying a book written by this hateful David Horowitz in remembrance of his daughter.
“A Cracking Of The Heart” might be a good book for both parties and all people to read.
This is what the reviewing author (David Swindle) sums up of Sarah Horowitz lasting legacy:
"The world could not be effectively changed at the level of government. Merely passing laws, smashing institutions, and electing better politicians would not work to heal the world. To do so was to not really go to the root of the problem. To pursue tikkun olam effectively, to truly be progressive, to be radical in spirit, one must operate at the level of individual people – not governments, laws, and institutions.
This approach takes the Left out of the political arena and returns it to the religious realm from which it originally emerged. Focusing on healing individual souls is the way churches and synagogues function. And here’s the secret: it works. Good houses of worship do heal people’s souls and make them better people.
Sarah understood this. That’s why she primarily worked this way: she taught autistic children, she worked with poor communities in foreign countries, she taught at her synagogue alongside her mentor the late Rabbi Alan Lew.
Both those on the Right and the Left need to understand this: the way to heal the world is one shattered human soul at a time." (From the article)
Her father David Horowitz who appears to live life exactly opposite of how his daughter lived her short life wrote this book about her.
