Reactions to Pittsburgh synagogue shooting


The Jewish community in Frederick and beyond is still reeling from an October 27th shooting in which eleven congregants were gunned down in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

The shooter, who has been charged with a hate crime among other charges, shouted “All Jews Must Die” as he fired an AR-15 and three Glock .357 handguns at random. Incidents of anti-semitism are on the rise in the United States — in 2017, reported incidents of anti-semantiitism rose by 57 percent according to the Anti-Defamation League’s latest report.

Rabbi Jordan Hersh joins Emma Kerr and Colin McGuire from the Beth Sholom Congregation in Frederick to describe the moments and days since the shooting, and his hope that hate can be overcome.
