A message from OVS President Michael Bouhadana

It’s impossible to understand the reasons for such killings at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. We want to act and make things better, but we’re not sure how. I want to highlight below the Jewish Federation email (10/29, 5:00PM) to the Atlanta Jewish Community to “Rise up in ATL to Stand with Pittsburgh.”
"…In the face of terror, we cannot hide. Two days ago there was an attempt to overshadow Shabbat with hate. This Shabbat (November 2-3), we will observe a Solidarity Shabbat nation-wide, coming together across geography, across denominations, even across faiths to show that we are stronger than hate, counteracting the greatest act of anti-Semitism in American history with the greatest act of solidarity."
We can act on the Federation’s call to “Show up for Shabbat” by coming to Congregation Or Veshalom this Friday night and Saturday morning. Let us do our share to show solidarity with those affected by last week’s horrible act. I hope to see everyone there.

Shabbat Shalom!
