0US Jewish, Sikh Communities Closer after Shooting at Wisconsin Temple: Joint Candlelight Vigils

An August shooting at a Wisconsin Sikh temple claimed six lives, but it also has created new bridges between the Sikh and Jewish communities in Washington DC. Rabbis joined with Sikh community leaders for a joint candlelight vigil earlier this month, and Jewish organizations have held vigils and forged new bonds with local Sikh communities. What’s more, Jewish political leaders are now collaborating with their Sikh counterparts to dispel prejudices and to educate the public about two minority religions in the US that have a shared history of oppression but also perseverance.
