Thought you'd be encouraged by this article. We attended the memorial service it highlights, and it was packed with a wide array of community members...we saw some of our Christian friends, Jewish friends, and Muslim friends. A Muslim drummer, who Rabbi Dresdner introduced as "my dear friend", played drums with their worship band that accompanied the sung prayers and worship that wove throughout the service.

 As Lisa, the rabbi's wife, looked out on the growing crowd pouring in for the service, we heard her comment to someone in front of us that she was not expecting such an outpouring of love, and it overwhelmed her to tears. We heard that the nation saw similar wide response in other towns across the country at this last Friday's Shabbat services, just a week after the killings at the Shabbat service in Pennsylvania. God's love is stronger than hate! -Bruce & Jan, Hope House

Kudos to Ann Foye, Hope House volunteer and sewing class teacher, for her dedication in sewing masks needed in Maine to keep healthcare workers and residents safe.
