In the aftermath of the deadly Chabad of Poway shooting attack, the synagogue’s rabbi, Yisroel Goldstein, has called on North American Jews to attend synagogue.


“This weekend, go to your own respective synagogues, fill up the ballrooms, fill up the sanctuaries, let them see that nothing will take us down, let them see that this is not going to deter us; it’s not going to scare us,” Goldstein told Chabad.org.
He said that “Jewish unity is what we need now.”

The Chabad synagogue was attacked by a white supremacist on the last day of Passover. One person was killed and three injured, including the rabbi.


#ShareShabbat, part of Chabad’s “Do a Mitzvah for Poway” program, is backed by Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries around the world, Chabad-Lubavitch World Headquarters in Brooklyn, N.Y., and Chabad.org.
