and solidarity with our

and in the Jewish community

of Pittsburgh, PA.

The words of Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein

Dear Friends

We are all still in shock and pain from the news of the brutal murder of Pittsburgh Jews in shul last Shabbat. The gunshots may have been fired in Pittsburgh, but they were heard so clearly in Jewish communities throughout the world.

Like one people with one heart, we share in each other’s joy and we share in each other’s pain. We are a global family of brothers and sisters. And for family – we show up. That’s why I call on everyone to join the global call to show up for Shabbat this week in protest and defiance of the worst attack on Jews in America’s history.

Haman came to destroy the Jewish people. Mordechai refused to bow down. He was fearless. Unwilling to submit to the intimidation and hatred of our enemies. Let us follow his lead. And let the word go out that we will not bow down and we will not submit to fear tactics. We will not be chased from our houses of prayer, from our values and our mission. On the contrary. We will emerge from this with more resolve than ever to defend our Divine mission and destiny.

Let us join hands with our brothers and sisters around the world and support this movement. Join me and let us all show up at shul this Shabbat and make a difference.

Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein
