    ArticleGuns Will Not Save Us

    I was 14 years old the first time I held a gun. My parents had recently divulged that they owned not one, but two, 9 mm semi-automatic handguns. The thought of guns in my house was scary, even if they were kept in small lock boxes, stashed far in the back of my parent’s closet. It occurred to me that even if you have a gun,... more...

    I stood inches from the pealing wail of the Shofar during last week’s Rosh Ha-shanah services at East Side Synagogue. This commencement of the Jewish High Holidays and the welcomed entrance of the year 5778 reminded a full room of people of their purpose and God’s presence.
