Maurice, do you think there is a connection between Aurora & Newtown?

"The fact that the vast majority of the prayers and hymns offered were Christian – with specific Christological references - made some of the Jewish dignitaries on the dais uncomfortable. As someone who has participated in similar events for many years now, it didn’t surprise me. After 25 years in the Rabbinate I know that the only way to avoid this is to engage in a process of dialogue and discussion. Clearly, we have our work cut out for us. And yet, this was not a time to bring this up. That can wait until the future. "
