Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein spoke with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday night, and recalled the horrific moments of the attack on his Chabad House in Poway, California that left him wounded, murdered congregant Lori Kaye HY”D, 60, and shot and wounded an eight-year-old girl and her uncle.
Rabbi Goldstein called for restoring prayer in public schools with a moment of silence for schoolchildren to connect with G-D.
“Why did they take prayer out of the public schools?” Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein asked Anderson Cooper on Monday during an appearance on CNN.
“When Ronald Reagan was shot, a campaign was launched that public schools should introduce a moment of silence. I’m hoping to get legislation to reintroduce that, that children when they start their day should take a moment of silence to think about themselves and to realize that they are children of God, that they have a soul, that they are created in the image of God, to value life, and to value more of life than just the materialism, that there’s a spiritual dimension to life.”
