Note from Temple Beth Shalom Board: Thank you for reaching out to us about the events that happened this week. The community response has been amazing and is much appreciated. Early morning Monday February 8, an individual vandalized Temple Beth Shalom with hate symbols. Appropriate authorities have been notified, and investigations are underway. We are angered by this violation, but also grieve that members of our society harbor such hatred. We remain vigilant in the fight to protect everyone’s right to religious freedom and promote tolerance. We will not let these events deter us from living as Jews in our society. Antisemitism is a strike not against just Jews, but against all who cherish our society for the love and freedoms we have. Many of you have offered support. We are ever grateful. The best response is to educate and speak out against hate crimes of any sort, directed at any person or group. Our society should not tolerate bigotry. Many have offered service or donations to Temple Beth Shalom. If you feel you would like to help, donations to The Yom Hashoah fund at Temple Beth Shalom, whose purpose is to educate about the Holocaust, or to the Temple Beth Shalom clean-up fund are gratefully accepted. Thank you for your thoughts and support!
