Seeking Peace -- A Letter to the Sikh Commnity

To the people of the Sikh community in Ashland and elsewhere, our hearts are with you at this very sad time. As a Jewish person, my brethren and I are no stranger to senseless violence committed by those whose ignorance is a blight upon this nation.

Please know the one who committed this senseless act of violence and murder against those sitting in prayer at the Temple in Wisconsin is in a distinct minority and that the majority stand with you and we mourn together. I offer my heartfelt hope after the initial period of grief your community and ALL of our communities stand stronger collectively for a more peaceful and loving world.
