A CRY FOR HELP FROM TOULOUSE
This is a cry for help from The Progressive Jewish Community of Toulouse to raise money to help secure their premises. The Community is currently served by Peter Radvanski, who is one of Rabbi Michael Hilton’s Leo Baeck College students. The week after the attack on a rabbi and three children was particularly traumatic for him and his congregation, as a number of their children were present at close quarters and witnessed the killings.
The AJLT (Jewish community for Progressive Judaism in Toulouse) thanks you for all your expression of sympathy after the slaughter of 4 people (3 of them young children) in Ozar Hatorah high school. Today, a week after this massacre, we have to react and secure our congregation centre, where our children and members meet and where we hold cultural and religious activities. In fact, just before this horrible event, we completed a security audit and the cost of the security measures for our community of one hundred families is very high at about 10,000 Euros. So, we are sending you a cry for help to help us raise the money to secure our premises.
Best Regards, Annie Cohen, Administrator AJLT
