An Appeal from Community and Religious Leaders:
Rabbi Mark Schiftan, The Temple Nashville:
“Our traditions and sacred texts instruct us not to stand idly by while our neighbor bleeds. We mourn the tragic loss of innocent human life in Chattanooga, the deranged shooting of five United States servicemen, those soldiers who sought to honor and defend our nation and its highest values of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our hearts collectively compel us to support their families in their greatest time of need in tangible ways that will do something to ease their burdens, as they must first mourn their loved ones and then rebuild their lives as best as they can.”
Rev. Dr. Tony Richie, Bishop in the Church of God, Senior Pastor at New Harvest Church:
“When communities of all faiths come together, it demonstrates that God is working in the face of evil. In these tough times, we can come together and turn the tables on the evil in our midst. Thus we overcome evil with good. In faith, common hope and love, we can minister to the Chattanooga families who are suffering.”
Daoud Abudiab, President Faith and Culture Center | Our Muslim Neighbor Nashville:
“We need to send the families of our fallen servicemen lost to a senseless killing a new and different message; one of compassion, support and love. Donate now and put your faith in action, let your voice be heard.”
