Peace Rally at Cherry Hill Jewish Community Center

Yesterday, a bomb threat caused the evacuation of the Katz Jewish Community Center in Cherry Hill. Rather than condemn the incident, Donald Trump blamed the Jews.

Today, about 200 people of all ages and religions gathered outside the JCC in solidarity. Here are some photos of the demonstration.

To me, the most poignant moment was when we were standing at the busy intersection where the JCC is located. A car was stopped at the traffic light, and a passenger – a Gentile woman about 80 years old – removed her oxygen tube, came out of the car, and hugged several of the protesters. She then got back into the car, the light changed, and the car drove off.

    It’s events like this that help to delay my decision to give up on the human race.
