Jewish Community Bans Together During Mideast Crisis

Grand Junction's Reform Jewish Synagogue held a special sabbath service. The purpose was to discuss the crisis between Israel and Lebanon and raise money for humanitarian issues. Jo Breman has been to Israel more than 90 times and says as violence escalates in the Mideast. The Jewish community must come together to help those caught in the crossfire. Congregation Ohr Shalom is accepting monetary donations. If you would like to donate you can send a check to Congregation Ohr Shalom at P.O. Box 1311, Grand Junction, Colorado 81502. Members of the congregation have also started a letter writing campaign to thank government officials who support Israel.
