An open letter to Yishai Schlissel,who stabbed six people at the Jerusalem Gay Pride parade:

You have profaned the Divine Image in which all of us are created. You have brought shame and disgrace upon our people.
You did this ten years ago. You should have been in prison.
Now I pray, the Israeli authorities will put you away for the rest of your life, so that you never have the chance to hurt anyone again.
Your heinous act has made it difficult for us to celebrate this Shabbat as a time of peace and joy. But we will try because we are commanded to choose life and blessing instead of the curse (Deuteronomy 30:19) that you have brought upon our people and all people of good will!
