40s Germany is here

There was a bomb threat at the Jewish Community Center in Ann Arbor today. And in Asheville. And in Harrisburg. And Indianapolis. And Tarrytown & Staten Island, NY. And Cherry Hill. Birmingham. Wilmington, Delaware (3rd time for that JCC). Rockville, Maryland. Fairfax, Virginia. And Davie, outside Miami. The day is not yet over. I’ve heard of 21 Jewish community centers and schools attached today. 

That Ann Arbor one hurt me. When I lived in MI, I lived in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood. Like, the mall had a giant dreidel in Dec instead of a nativity scene. I’m shaken for that community. It’s so close to home. It’s not happening in 40s Germany. It’s here & now.

I saw this fb live video, shot in Philly. I hope it embodies how we all feel. We will not let this divide is. 

Meanwhile, my friend’s father is trying to fix his grandfather’s tombstone
