JEWISHcolorado Mourns with Highland Park Community

Jul 4, 2022

(DENVER) — We are grateful to the Illinois local, state, and national law enforcement communities for the expedient apprehension of a person of interest in the Fourth of July mass shooting at a holiday parade in Highland Park outside of Chicago. We extend our thoughts and prayers to the families of the six people who lost their lives, and to the many more injured. We know this incident is hitting hard in our fellow Jewish communities in Highland Park and surrounding areas. JEWISHcolorado stands with the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, and the many synagogues and communities impacted. We pray we have the fortitude not to turn a blind eye or a hardened heart to these ongoing violent atrocities unfolding each day in this country.
