Spotlight On

Gun Violence in America:
Four Years After Newtown 

By Rabbi Joel M. Mosbacher

He would be turning 71 next month. He and his high school sweetheart would have celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary this week, and they would be enjoying their retirement together. He would be the doting, baby-hogging grandfather to 3 grandchildren. He would be attending Big 10 football games with his oldest grandson, tae kwon do tests with his middle grandson, and dance recitals with his granddaughter. He would, people have said, be so proud of his son, the rabbi. But he’s not here. Click here to read more.
