Our Hearts Are Breaking

The ghastly shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA, during Shabbat services yesterday morning is shocking, saddening, and deeply disturbing. Our hearts are breaking as we pray for our fellow Jews who were affected this morning. Even as we share their grief, let us also reach out and reassure each other. When hate and violence rise up, let us commit to fight it and overcome it. We all seek to live lovingly and peaceably with each other. Let us work to bring that about.
