We Stand Against Hate

Kerem Shalom hung a banner reading “We Stand Against Hate” at our Elm Street entrance and in the Social Hall.

Why the banner? The October 7th Hamas attack and the many events that followed inspired the KS Board to consider our signage. The Board concluded that we should replace the sign on Elm Street with a banner that communicated our support for Israel (but not necessarily the current Israeli government or policies), makes a statement against both antisemitism and other forms of hate and intolerance; and highlights the fact that Kerem Shalom is and will continue to be a Jewish institution serving Concord and surrounding communities.
