The terrorist Hamas attack against civilians in Israel, leaving over a thousand Israelis dead, is horrifying and inexcusable. No provocation by the Israeli government or right-wing settlers can excuse these outrageous war crimes.
With the death toll in Gaza now approaching a thousand, both Israelis and Gazans are living in terror for their lives, the lives of their children and the lives of the hostages taken by Hamas. We support Israel’s right to defend itself and call upon Israel to act within international law in its response.
Only justice for all who live in the region can ensure a lasting peace. Israel’s existence as well as rights for Palestinians must be assured.
October 11. 5:00–6:00 p.m. TOPIC: How do you work peacefully with someone who thinks or believes differently from you? What guides you? Has your participation in Interfaith Interconnect been helpful?

In Jewish tradition, we remember the yortseit, the anniversary of the death of loved ones. We remember what we loved and valued about them, and we think of how to continue those qualities in our own lives.
June 24 is the yortseit of Roe v Wade, the right of bodily autonomy and the right of doctors to do their jobs. We never thought this day could come, but it did, and it presaged even more attacks on bodily autonomy as evidenced in anti-gay and anti-trans laws in many states.
