We're done praying. Join the movement. Join us at Rabbis Against Gun Violence.

A few things are clear, having been forced into tense contemplation by the now-over holiday of Shavuot: We're done praying. The attack on Queer people in Orlando - the worst gun massacre in American history - during the one year anniversary week of the shooting massacre in a Black Charleston church, is a tipping point. Here's part of what that means: any elected official who votes with NRA will lose their seat - including Democrats. Here's another thing that's clear: we're done with moments of silence and we're done with prayers. If faith isn't something we practice with our bodies, the blood spilled in this American ‪#‎GunViolence‬ epidemic is on our hands. We don't have to live this way. Join the movement. Join us at Rabbis Against Gun Violence. Tomorrow will be too late. We've got work to do. Stand with your LGBTQ brothers and sisters. And get moving. This election we take our lives back from the ‪#‎NRA‬.
