Faith Factor | Jewish community offers condolences

On behalf of the Reno/Tahoe Jewish Community, we would like to express our heartfelt condolences on the tragic shootings that have devastated your school and the entire Jewish world on Monday.

We especially wish to convey our sympathy to the families of Rabbi Jonathan Sandler z”l, his sons, Gabriel and Arieh z”l, and Miriam Monsonego z”l. Like Jewish communities everywhere, we will be including the names of these neshamot in our Kaddish Yatom and offer our tefillot for nechamah for the families and for everyone in your community.

We pray that you will heal from this trauma and are able to regain a sense of wholeness and security.
