Reaction to the Murders at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston.
BJBE is saddened and outraged by the murders of innocent worshippers committed yesterday inside the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. The clergy join with religious leaders in our area and around the world in condemning this terrible act of evil. Below is a statement by the Council of Religious Leaders of Metropolitan Chicago. We will remember the victims through prayer and music at Shabbat services tonight, which will be held at 6:30 p.m. Rabbi Stoller will also address the tragedy in his sermon tonight.
