02 Nov SHOW UP THIS SATURDAY
The tragedy last Saturday in Pittsburgh was horrific and heartbreaking. And while
many of us feel helpless in how, when and where to fight hatred and anti-Semitism,
there is something we can all do this Saturday – #Show Up For Shabbat.
The American Jewish Committee has launched a global effort to send a message that
we stand in solidarity this Shabbat with the people of Pittsburgh, and against those
with hate in their hearts.
Whether you are Jewish, or an ally, I encourage you to participate in Show Up For
Shabbat this Saturday and attend a Shabbat service in memory of the eleven souls
we lost last week. Shabbat services are an opportunity to reflect and remember
among community — a time of peace and prayer.
To #ShowUp, attend a local Friday night or Saturday morning service at a local
synagogue. Here is a link to the AJC website for details.
Here at the Hebrew Home, we will be offering a special prayer at our Shabbat
Let’s come together with a message of love this weekend. Join me in standing united
with the Pittsburgh Jewish community. Saturday and every day.
