The World Union for Progressive Judaism join other groups of good faith in condemning the senseless and murderous shooting in the Chabad Synagogue in Poway California. The world has now seen hundreds of deaths just in recent months, of people at prayer.
Places of worship that should be safe and spiritual which have horribly been turned in to places of carnage. While these vile acts have been widely condemned, it is not enough.
We need all political leaders to strongly call out these acts of hate and institute measures that protect all worshipers no matter which building of faith they are in. The world is going through a period of violence fed by hate and division, now more than ever we need real leadership to lead us out of violence to peace.
