Gun Violence Resources

Acts of gun violence, whether perpetrated against the Jewish community or not, are shattering the peace and sanctity of our lives at an alarming rate. As rabbis and Jewish leaders, we are called upon to provide comfort to the mourners and resources for those affected by these events, and to take action to ensure that future tragedies are avoided. 

Below, you will find words of hope, as well as resources to support you and your communities. Please contact our communications specialist, Emily Jaeger, at if you'd like to submit a resource to the list.
