WHC Clergy in the News

Rabbi Miller, Imam Shareef, Laura Coates at CNN

The past month has been difficult for everyone as we try to come to grips with the emotions we’re feeling. Our clergy team has been hearing from many of you, and the press has been interested in what they’re hearing. These have been more than just soundbites, they are nuanced dialogues with their Muslim counterparts. Here are just a few examples:

The conversations have been particularly insightful, as they have provided a unique perspective on the current situation. The two groups have been able to share their experiences and learn from each other, and this has helped to build trust and understanding.

One of the most important things that we can do right now is to come together as a community and support each other. The clergy team is here to offer support and guidance to anyone who needs it, and they encourage you to reach out if you are struggling.

Here are some specific ways that you can support your community during this difficult time:

Reach out to your neighbors and friends, and let them know that you are there for them.

  • Donate to local charities that are providing support to those in need.
  • Volunteer your time to help with relief efforts.
  • Attend community events and gatherings that are focused on healing and unity.
  • You can find all three on our How You Can Support Israel page

By working together, we can overcome the challenges that we are facing and build a stronger and more resilient community.
