None Shall Make Them Afraid: A Rabbis Against Gun Violence Anthology
Rabbis Against Gun Violence, a coalition of over 1600 American Jewish leaders, feels a fierce moral imperative to move beyond moments of silence and prayer and into action. We use our rabbinic voice to educate and advocate for positive, achievable solutions, such as legislative and legal measures, intervention strategies and culture change. "None Shall Make Them Afraid" is an anthology of the three books RAGV has published to date: "Peace in Our Cities" (2013) was written in response to the mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. "Not By Might" (2016) was in response to the mass shooting at the Pulse dance club in Orlando. "Holding Fast" (2018) was written in response to the mass shooting at the Tree Of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. Jewish tradition believes in a world without violence, a world the prophet Micah described where "every person will sit under their own vine and fig tree, and none shall make them afraid." We will join together with allies of all kinds, committed to the work it will take to see that day in our children's lifetimes.
