Today Temple Beth Shalom announced in a press release that in response to the recent desecration which took place at synagogue on Yom Kippur, the congregation would like to invite the faith communities of Spokane to a special Shabbat service of Welcome and Solidarity.

“In the Jewish faith, this is the time of year when we take special care to open ourselves to family, friends, and community.  What better time to stand in solidarity together—people of all faiths and none—as we reject hatred and intolerance and instead champion respect for diversity,” the press release reads.

The service will take place Friday at 6 p.m.
