Spreading the Light

Students at Tzohar Seminary in Pittsburgh were in the 3rd week of school when tragedy hit at the nearby Tree of Life Synagogue. In the spirit of the community’s response of unity and strength in the face of terror and darkness, the students encouraged Jewish women to light Shabbos candles in memory of one of the eleven martyrs.

This is beautiful. I think the key to moving on from this attack as a people is to come together and support each other. This can be in a direct way, such as the people that went and visited the Tree of Life synagogue in the aftermath. But it can also just be looking out for one another in your local communities and synagogues, or even online with forums Reply
