Following the discovery of a number of swastikas drawn in chalk in Stamford on Thursday, Rabbi Rachel Berman of Temple B’nai Chaim in Georgetown has issued a message.
“Hatred is insidious,” she wrote on Facebook. “It surfaces in moments of pain and in moments of complacency. The Nazi swastika is a symbol of hatred, ignorance, and fear. As we mourn the loss of those killed in Thousand Oaks, and Pittsburgh, and on and on... we have to grapple with the hatred that continues to surface in our country. We can be so much more than this,” she said.
