SFI prays for the victims of Sikh temple shooting

Six people were killed Sunday at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in what the FBI is calling “a hate crime and a domestic terrorist attack.” The gunman, Wade Michael Page, allegedly had links to white supremacist organizations, though his motives for targeting the temple have not yet been confirmed.

Just as we prayed for the victims and their families in the Aurora, Colorado shooting late last month, we offer prayers today for the community affected by this senseless shooting spree. As an organization committed to interfaith dialogue, respect, and cooperation, we stand against hateful religious intolerance – in any form.

Rabbi's Commentary
God Is Present This Holy Season

Even as efforts for peace seem to be at an impasse all around the world, the Passover story can give us hope and affirmation that God is always present in our lives, and even when situations seem impossible, He is working in ways we cannot imagine.
