Poway Chabad Shooting Message

 


As you know, today, a terrible tragedy occurred in Chabad of Poway just before yizkor, and a beautiful sister of ours, Lori Kaye, lost her life, just for being Jewish.  We wish a speedy recovery to Rabbi Goldstein, who lost fingers, Almog Peretz who was shot in the leg while shoving children out of the exit doors, and a child, Noya Dahan, who was hit by debris.

Within a few hours, police were already at our door, stationed, and then patrolling for the rest of the day.  Law enforcement and city council have reached out with love and support, and we feel it.  We are blessed to live in the wonderful United States of America and double down on our commitment to strengthen the Jewish community with life and vitality here.  We will not let the haters win.

While the recent spike in antisemitism is alarming and needs to be addressed in a major way, both locally and nationally, the call of the hour is to remind ourselves that we don't give in to terrorism and will not change our lives or live in fear because of the haters.  I'll have more to share in my next email, but will leave it here for now.

Please give a hug to your children, bring them to shul, and teach them the beauty of being a Jew.
