After beautiful High Holy Days filled with family, friends, food, prayer and community, we are faced with another horrific and tragic event in our country; the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
For those who attended High Holy Day services, you heard our Co-Presidents, Susan Kohn Arovas and Scott Musoff introduce us as the co-leaders of “BE THE LIGHT” , our task force intended to provide support on social justice issues. We planned to spend some time formulating our plan and designing a logo. But, in light of this week’s tragedy, we decided instead that we need to act and we need to act now.
Below you will find words from Daryl Messinger, the Chair of the North American Board of Trustees for the Union For Reform Judaism. We hope these words provide both comfort and encouragement to take action now.
With strength & peace,
Ronnie Cohn & Lori Abrams
