We are heartbroken by the news from Pittsburgh this morning. 8 people were shot and killed at the Tree of Life synagogue during shabbat morning services. We will not be silent in the wake of this violent act of anti-semitism- we will reach for each other and for our allies as we join together to fight oppression in all of its forms.
Join the Boston Jewish Community tonight for connection, mourning and healing. This is scary. And- We have an opportunity to come together in public to show that we are more resilient and powerful than we are afraid of those who want to hurt us. Now is a moment to show up for ourselves, to reach for our allies, and to make it clear that fighting to be safe as Jews is directly tied to disrupting white supremacy and the violent rise of nationalism we are seeing right now.
We are the Jewish Resistance, we have each others' backs, mir veln zey iberlebn (we will outlive them).
