New Hampshire Responds To The Shooting At A Pennsylvania Synagogue
We talk to religious leaders, educators, and the director of a new civil rights unit at the N.H. Dept. of Justice about the killings this weekend at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 dead and several wounded, including four police officers. This latest mass shooting occurs amid an apparent surge in hate-related speech and crimes in this country, as well as calls for political unity.
- Elizabeth Lahey - Director of the Civil Rights Unit at the N.H. Department of Justice.
- Tom White - Coordinator of Educational Outreach at the Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Keene State College.
- Jonathan Spira-Savett - Rabbi for Temple Beth Abraham in Nashua.
A prayer vigil is scheduled for Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the Temple Israel sanctuary.
Reform Judaism offers resources for coping after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, including four ways to talk to teens.
