Dear Siblings in Faith,
Our hearts ache with yours as news of the Tree of Life Congregation shooting continues to echo throughout the country, and especially in synagogues and houses of worship everywhere.
We know that for centuries the light of Shabbat, and each day for the Jewish people, has been threatened by hate and anti-Semitism. What seeks to be allowable in these times will remain intolerable to us. We vow to be your partners in creating a world in which your lives, ways of worship, and beauty not only survive but flourish.
In gratitude for your presence,
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
On behalf of the Unitarian Universalist Church at Washington Crossing
