“Don’t stop after beating the swords into ploughshares, don’t stop! Go on beating and make musical instruments out of them. Whoever wants to make war again will have to turn them into ploughshares first.” –Yehuda Amichai
Jewish tradition teaches that “whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world” (Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:9).
I will not mince words: the violence we witnessed this weekend is sickening. Join me in ensuring the period of “thoughts and prayers” without action is over – that instead, we prioritize real, lasting change to keep our communities safe.
