Our hearts are burdened with grief at the tragic shooting at the Chabad Synagogue of Poway, our neighbors just down the road from us, that occurred last Saturday while they were celebrating the last day of Passover, one of the most important Holidays for the Jewish People.  As a people of faith – and as Americans who cherish the rights of All to believe and worship as they please – this incomprehensible act of violence weighs us down with so much sadness.  A crime against one person of faith is a crime against us all.  Our prayers and support go out to our brothers and sisters at Chabad of Poway and we offer them whatever support we can possibly give.  A good gesture from all of us would be send by mail a note or card of sympathy, encouragement and friendship to the Chabad Community.  The address is: Chabad Community of Poway, 16934 Espola Road, Poway, CA, 92064.
