Good and smart point. A Massachusetts rabbi is urging his congregation to bring their guns to Shabbat — claiming their thoughts and prayers are not enough to save them during a mass shooting.
“We can’t think, ‘I’m just praying, and God will save me,’ ” said Rabbi Dan Rodkin, of Shaloh House in Boston, in an interview with WBUR. “No,” he told the radio station, “we need to take care of situations ourselves.”
Rabbi Rodkin points to the country’s recent rise in domestic extremism and hate crimes over the past few years as his reasoning for making such a demand — the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, specifically.
Synagogue shooting suspect Robert Bowers allegedly shouted “all Jews must die” before bursting into a Pittsburgh house of worship and killing 11 worshipers last October. There have been countless other hate crimes involving victims of the Jewish faith, including another synagogue shooting in California back in April. Neal Gold, president of the Massachusetts Board of Rabbis, told WBUR that he doesn’t agree with Rodkin’s idea to arm his flock, but he does see where he’s coming from.
