In an Op-Ed in JTA, Aleppo Needs Action, Not Words,
Steven Nasatir, used those very words to review the historic tragedy that
has been and is Aleppo
and our sacred responsibility to act, to assist.
It was great that Steve spoke eloquently of Chicago's
interaction with the Syrian community and the
Fund created to assist the victims of the horrific
violence in Syria.
I know from speaking with friends around the Continent
that Chicago is not alone. Kal ha'kavod to
every community that has engaged,
Of course we could have 155 federations acting alone
but we do have, or we think we have, we pay to have,
Continentalan umbrella that should be speaking for all of us.
Instead, Steve Nasatir has.
