Gallery: Hundreds of Milton Neighbors show up for Shabbat at Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills
Hundreds showed up for the Milton Interfaith Clergy Association gathering on November 3rd to witness, show support, and stand in solidarity with our Jewish neighbors. The gathering read the Kaddish for those killed at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburg. It shared in the traditional Prayer for Our Country.
The gathering also took the pledge of No Place for Hate Resolution of Respect:
“I pledge from this day forward to do my best to combat prejudice and to stop those who because of hate or ignorance, would hurt anyone or violate their civil rights.
I will try at all times to be aware of my own biases and seek to gain understanding of those who I perceive as being different from myself. I will speak out against all forms of prejudice and discrimination. I will reach out to support those who are targets of hate.
I recognize that respecting individual dignity, achieving equality and promoting intergroup harmony are the responsibilities of all people. By making this pledge, I commit myself to creating a community and a country where there is No Place for Hate.”
