Rabbis From Here React To Pittsburgh


The dead are buried from the attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue, but they are not forgotten.  Eleven Jews shot down because of their religion is an enormous wound in the American body politic. 

The wound is felt most dearly in other Jewish congregations. 

Rabbi David Zaslow presides over Ashland's Havurah Shir Hadash.  Rabbi Debra Kolodny leads Portland's UnShul and offers training in "Interrupting Hate in Public Spaces."  They visit with us about their thoughts at this moment in history.
