Shabbat Shalom: From the President 06.17.16

Two nights ago at the Alliance Annual Meeting, all in attendance stood in a moment of silence to remember and honor the scores of innocents who were senselessly murdered and injured at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. Thereafter, I saluted the power and inclusivity of our greater Rhode Island Jewish community, one which not only supports, comforts, and enriches all of us, but indeed makes our lives more palatable and secure.

As Lin-Manuel Miranda so brilliantly and poignantly stated at the Tony Awards, “…we rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer, and love is love is love is love… cannot be killed or swept aside.” The work of the Alliance and our partners is the loving antidote to brutality. Counteracting the horrific activities that are occurring all too repeatedly constitutes nothing more than the definition of Jewish core values.

Shabbat Shalom,
Jeffrey K. Savit
President & CEO
