Bonai Shalom Hosts Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath

Bonai ShalomBonai Shalom invites the community to join us in observance of Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath at our Shabbat service on the morning on March 15th at the Universalist Unitarian Church, 5001 Pennsylvania Ave., Boulder, at 9:30 a.m. There will be prayers and reflections during the service from Rabbi Marc Soloway, UUCB’s minister Howell Lind and others. You are invited to join us for a Kiddush lunch during which there will be time for further discussion.

Places of worship across the nation are joining the Washington National Cathedral and Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, a coalition of 50 national denominations and faith-based organizations, to remember those who have lost their lives to gunfire, pray for those whose lives have been forever changed because of the loss of a loved one, and to continue the discussion on how communities of faith can work together to help reduce gun violence.

    There are over a million crimes per year prevented by the use of guns as a deterrence. And, Americans should still remember how the British used governmental overreach to oppress the Americans during our period of national conflict leading to the 1776 American Revolution. They should also remember that millions of Jews died in the Holocaust who were unarmed and not allowed to arm. And they should remember how important it was to Jewish Holocaust survivors that they stepped from the fields of European revanchism to the fields of Palestinian conflict and died because of the lack of arms to defeat the onslaught of six Arab armies, fully equipped and trained (by the British, who refused to allow the Jewish population to properly arm themselves).
