Los Alamos Stands With Jewish Communities Across America With Candlelight Vigil Monday Evening

on March 5, 2017 - 9:34am


Just since the beginning of this year, 77 Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) — nearly half of all JCCs in the United States — have received bomb threats, as have eight Jewish schools. Jewish cemeteries in St. Louis, Philadelphia, and Rochester, New York have been vandalized. And a bullet was fired into the window of a (thankfully, empty) synagogue classroom in Evansville, Ind.

During Lent we read a lot from the prophet Isaiah at our Catholic Mass, and part of our reading Saturday was:

If you remove from your midst oppression,
false accusation and malicious speech;
If you bestow your bread on the hungry
and satisfy the afflicted;
Then light shall rise for you in the darkness,
and the gloom shall become for you like midday;
Then the LORD will guide you always…

(Isaiah 58:9-11 NAB)

That “malicious speech” thing continues to hit home.

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7 (NIV)
