I grew up near the Pittsburgh synagogue that was murderously attacked on Saturday. The eleven elderly people killed there were neighbors in a community I remember fondly for its tranquility and harmony.

Another vivid memory is that some five decades ago this house of worship was one of those that prominently displayed a sign exhorting congregants and passersby like me to "Save Soviet Jews."

That expression of concern for others is a hallmark of so many of the Jewish faith. It launched a movement that ultimately liberated millions of Jews and hundreds of millions of others enslaved by the "Evil Empire."

Sadly, Jews now need saving in lots of places, including in Europe and even in America where anti-Semitic violence is on the rise. We must stand against those who would come for them, and then for the rest of us.
