Happy holidays Montana and good will to all!

Wonderful people I salute you! I do hope the perpetrator or perpetrators are caught and punished and maybe even learn to love not hate.

breathtakingly 'spot on'

thank you so much for sharing - A most beautiful and heartwarming story. My daughter lives in Montana and she has embraced Catholicism as there is very little Jewish population in Missoula. We have more Catholics than Jews in our family. Since my mom died in 2018 traditions have gone by the wayside. I instill in my grandchildren & adult children the idea & practice of Mitzvahs - Om Shalom and blessed be-

Not allowed

There Is a big difference between respect for people with other beliefs versus respecting other beliefs. As Jews we do not embrace any other religions as we witnessed G-d giving us His Torah and know that Judaism is not just a choice but a covenant that G-D obligated us to. To reject ones Jewish faith is to reject G-D’s covenant.

God is the true light ,we need to believe and welcome Him

If we value darkness more than light we perish.

Uplifting at a time when it is sorely needed

As a Jew who has lived as a minority in several locations across my lifespan, I am heartened by this example of what our country should be. Thank you for sharing...hopefully others will join you in understanding and acceptance

Thank You

Thank you for posting this and thinking you to the people of Billings Montana. In a time when anti-semitism is on the rise in the USA, EU and the world in general, from both the left and the right, it is good to know that there are still people of good conscience and strong conviction who are willing to stand up against hate.
