Ezra Shanken: Sunday Afternoon and Saturday Morning
ezra shanken: We go through times of light together and we go through times of darkness together, according to CTV. Right now, we are going through a time of mourning, said Ezra Shanken, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver. The Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver hosted the event on Sunday afternoon, as a way to show its solidarity with those impacted by the senseless tragedy. Saturday morning, a gunman opened fire during a baby-naming ceremony inside Tree of Life Synagogue, killing 11 and injuring six people. When people are killed in a sanctuary, it's exactly the opposite of what one expects or what one hopes for of being a safe place, said Rabbi Jonathan Infeld with Congregation Beth Israel. The suspect, Robert Gregory Bowers, is now facing 11 state charges of homicide, six counts of aggravated assault and 13 counts of ethnic intimidation. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
