On the horrific stabbings at Jerusalem Pride

On the horrific stabbings at Jerusalem Pride today by the same evildoer who did it 10 years ago: “This violence aimed at LGBTQ people is a sin. This is baseless hatred, not religion. The responsibility for the stabbings aimed at the life of every LGBTQ person is on the shoulders of Ultra Orthodox Jewish leaders and any religious person that teaches that persecution is acceptable in God’s eyes. My prayer today, as the leader of Congregation Kol Ami in Los Angeles where all are welcome, is for God to heal those wounded in today’s stabbings and that the perpetrator be stopped from harming anyone ever again. May the God of justice be reflected in all our lives” – Rabbi Denise L. Eger
