    Strangers No More

    Strangers No More

    Seven years ago, a tragedy shook the community when a man, intent on killing Jews, shot and took the lives of three people who were actually Christians. Three beloved souls lost to a senseless hate crime. Marcia Rittmaster and Sharon Ritter share the story -- upon reading what Rabbi Mark Levin said of the Jewish community at that time, "We are largely strangers...", members of United Methodist Women  considered how alone they must feel. These women reached out to Jewish women and determined to partner together to construct paths to understanding, build bridges through relationships, develop new understandings of what it means to be citizens of a loving community created in the image of God, and pursue the possibility of future events and ways to unite and work together. They truly are Strangers No More.
