After the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting, Syracuse local leaders of the Jewish faith reacted to the tragic incident. They said that it is important to spread love during this time.
The shooting that killed eleven people on Saturday has brought the Jewish community in Syracuse together. President and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Central New York, Michael Balanoff, said that it doesn’t matter what branch of Judaism someone practices, everyone is together.
The President of a local Synagogue, Chaim Jaffe said that large numbers of people showing up to Temple, after such acts of hatred, sends a message of strength.
Jaffe says that such tragedies cause people to take a moment to pause and think, but hate never wins.
