Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles - 05-09


Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) brought forth a resolution May 8 denouncing the April 27 shooting at the Chabad of Poway. The resolution honored Lori Gilbert-Kaye, 60, who was killed during the shooting as someone who was “bravely saving the life of Rabbi [Yisroel] Goldstein and praised Border Patrol agent Jonathan Morales and Army veteran Oscar Stewart for “running toward the perpetrator of the attack.” The resolution went on to condemn the 19-year-old alleged shooter for expressing “white supremacist and white nationalist sentiments” and called white nationalism and white supremacy “a threat to the security of the United States.” It also denounces anti-Semitism as “an age-old form of prejudice, discrimination, persecution, and marginalization of Jewish people that runs counter to the values of the United States.”
