Clergy from all faiths gathered Monday evening on the steps of City Hall to rally against hate.
“We must stand together. Together we can rule out this wicked and malicious disease and so tonight we declare hatred is not welcome in our town,” said Suburban Temple Rabbi Allison Van.
Passionate speeches by people, like Rabbi Van, brought about a round of applause from the crowd and fellow clergy members.
“Bigotry is not welcome in Cleveland. Racism is not welcome in Ohio City. Hatred is not welcome in Shaker Heights,” said Rabbi Van.
Mt. Zion of Oakwood Village Reverend Larry Macon said it’s more important than ever for the community to come together.
