A Gold Standard Resolution

In our previous posts, we shared the Leonia Interfaith Sanctuary City Resolution that our own Rabbi Schwartz helped to compose and that our Board of Trustees voted to endorse, along with the North Jersey Record's report on its introduction at a meeting of the Leonia town council, which we characterized as A Lukewarm Welcoming.

The resolution, and the reasoning behind it, rooted in our religious tradition, was discussed in depth by Rabbi Schwartz in his newsletter column, also posted here, “For You Were Strangers in the Land of Egypt”.

And we are pleased to share with you the fact that the story was also picked up by the USA Today Network, and covered in their local publication, Gold Coast Life, on March 3rd. Here is how it looked:

Regardless of the outcome, we are proud of our rabbi for taking a stand and upholding our long tradition of social justice and ethical conduct. Without a doubt, he has met the gold standard when it comes to spiritual leadership!
