The Rabbi of the synagogue that was the site of the deadliest anti-Semitic attack on Jews in the United States said that he would be honored to meet the President. Guess what happened next…
The man who survived the attack is being harassed by the anti-Trump clowns.
Rabbi Jeffrey Myers was leading a prayer service at the Tree of Life Congregation synagogue on Saturday when a white supremacist gunman entered the building and killed 11 people. Eight were elderly members of Myers’s congregation, and 3 more were members of a different congregation in the basement. Myers hid in the bathroom where he held the door closed until he was rescued by SWAT. Rabbi Myers was the first person to call 911.
He described his harrowing ordeal and the futility he felt as he heard the shooter killing the congregants that he was unable to rescue.
What an absolutely horrific ordeal.
On Monday, Rabbi Myers told CNN’s Alyson Camerota that the President of the United States is always welcome in the synagogue.

Since then, he’s been the target of abuse.
‘When I first said that the president was welcome, I’ve received a lot of emails, too numerous to count, I’ve received many that are not happy with those words.
‘Those emails also contain hate. It just continues in this vicious cycle. We need to be better than this.
‘We can be better than this,’ he told CNN.

The President and First Lady are scheduled to visit Pittsburgh at 4 pm Tuesday. Rabbi Myers says that he has no plans to meet with them at this time, his primary focus is on his congregation.
‘I have no plans at this time for any involvement. My attention will be the family. I have a funeral and I must tend to their needs. That’s where my attention will be,’ he said.
On Monday, he said: ‘It would be my honor to always meet a president of the United States.
‘These are good decent people. They didn’t have an ounce of hate in any of them.
‘We turn to the leaders of our country, we’ve got to stop hate. It can’t just be to say, we need to do we need to act to tone down a rhetoric.’
