TEMPLE SINAI SHALL BE DECLARED A WEAPONS-FREE ZONE

SPECIAL FOR THE AJT

 

In response to Governor Deal signing House Bill 60, the Safe Carry Protection Act of 2014, dubbed the “Guns Everywhere Bill,” into law, the Temple Sinai Board of Trustees has passed this resolution:

Whereas, in keeping with the spirit of Isaiah 2:4 “He shall judge between the nations and reprove many peoples, and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift the sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore”;

And whereas, reflecting that Temple Sinai is a house of God and a house of hope;

Therefore, with the exception of active military, and security personnel, Temple Sinai shall be declared a weapons-free zone;

Be it further resolved that this be actively communicated to the congregation and to law enforcement.
