Rabbi Dr Dovid Slavin told J-Wire: “Chabad of Poway called upon the Jewish world to ‘fill the synagogues’ to show that we will not be intimidated from coming to our houses of worship.

The evening began with a candle lighting ceremony, in memory of 60-yr-old Lori Kaye of blessed memory (Leah Bat Reuven) whose life was cut short in last Shabbat’s attack in California.

The candle lighting was followed by a meditation let by Rabbi Zevi Slavin.”

The service was followed by a Kiddush  prepared by OBK

Rabbi Slavin added: “This is a time to stand tall and united with good people from all backgrounds and political persuasions, as we see here tonight.  We are blessed to live in Australia where we can count on political leaders to stand with us.”
