Dear Chevre, 

I know we are all reeling from the hate-full tragedy in Pittsburgh yesterday. Please know that the leadership of Congregation Leyv Ha-Ir ~ Heart of the City is participating in region-wide security reviews and takes our security very very seriously. 

At our service on Friday, November 9 we will include special prayer for the families who have faced devastating loss and I welcome you to join in that remembrance. 

Also let's remember that ultimately the security of the Jewish community comes from working with all people to elect representatives and choose policies that ensure mental health treatment, gun management and mutual understanding between groups. 

In other words, our security comes from our solidarity, not from our fear. 

We will keep showing up with kindness and care for each other and for others. 

With love,

Rabbi Julie Greenberg
