Oct 29, 2018
Press Release

"The shooting at Tree of Life synagogue is deeply disturbing. The instant dread that is felt from another shooting has become all too familiar. Across the country, we are praying for the victims, their families, law enforcement on the scene, and the entire Jewish community of Pittsburgh. 

I attended the Congregation Shearith Israel in Dallas to stand in solidarity with the families in Pittsburgh, whose lives are forever changed. As Americans, we must disarm hate, confront cowardice, and mobilize against racial and religious bigotry. Only then, can real lasting change occur."
