Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch Responds to the Florida School Shooting
Stephen Wise Free Synagogue deeply mourns the tragic deaths of so many innocent children and adults in Parkland, Florida. We pray for the complete and speedy recovery of the wounded.
As we have called for in all recent mass shootings, we demand that our country take concrete steps toward preventing the intolerably easy access to firearms. We must have a searing national discussion about why these acts of mass violence occur so frequently in our country, and no other developed country.
