RSJI: Gun Violence Prevention


You shall not stand idly by the blood of your neighbor, I am God. (Lev. 19:16)

The Temple’s Gun Violence Prevention Social Justice Group is committed to “moving the needle on gun violence”. We are seeking new members with new ideas. We welcome teens, adults and seniors. Please email our chair to join our team.

Our goals are:

  • To educate and inform The Temple community about the issue in a non-partisan, morally-centered perspective
  • To advocate for ways to lessen the victims of gun violence
  • To help Temple families protect their children and families from the dangers of unsafe weapon storage practices

How we accomplished these goals:​​​​

  • We encourage parents to talk with their children about Gun Safety and sign the Gun Safety Pledge through our Safe Home Initiative.
  • Working in coalition with Outcry, Interfaith Voices against Gun Violence and other organizations at the Georgia Capitol, we advocate for sensible gun laws and participate in actions that raise awareness of the need for common sense gun legislation.
  • We support and encourage our senior rabbi to speak about these issues from the pulpit, and support the vigils and memorials for those who have perished by gun violence.
