Anyone else feel a duty to get more connected to their Judaism in times like this?

I’m not a Jew even by the definitions of Reform (not that Reform has the final word on the matter…), but as someone who has always “felt” Jewish in the values I was raised with and through my patriarchal lineage despite the lack of community involvement, I feel compelled more than ever in times like this to solidify my understanding and connection to Judaism. I don’t feel right calling myself a Jew publicly or even privately in most cases, but I wish I did, especially now. I wish I could say that in the face of all of this horror and heartbreak, that I’m part of this strong people that keeps going on, that I keep and maintain the traditions kept by my ancestors and the people I feel a connection with in the present.
