SWESRS together with Reform Judaism is supporting the #ShowUpForShabbat initiative urging people to attend synagogue this coming Shabbat, standing up to hatred and honouring the memory of those murdered in Pittsburgh. We hope you will join us at SWESRS on either Friday night or Saturday.
Please take the time to read this letter received from Ilford North MP, Wes Streeting , who is also Co-Chair, All-Party Parliamentary Group on Antisemitism
Reform Judaism joined Jewish communities around the world in mourning those murdered at Congregation Etz Chaim in Pittsburgh this past Shabbat. Our hearts join with their families and friends following this abhorrent hate crime. Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner spoke at a cross-communal and multi-faith vigil organised by JW3 and the Board of Deputies on Monday night. You can read her specially written prayer for Pittsburgh here - Prayer for Pittsburgh.
