Springfield Stands with Poway
Chabad of Springfield, in conjunction with the Jewish Federation and the Jewish Community Relations Council of Springfield, Illinois, invite you to a community wide evening of:

'Unity, Solidarity & Prayer' in response to the tragic attack at Chabad of Poway, California.

Due to the tremendous response we have received from the community and dignitaries, we will be moving the evening to a new venue to accommodate a larger crowd.

The event will now take place at ‘President Abraham Lincoln Springfield - a DoubleTree by Hilton’, located at 701 East Adams St. Springfield, IL, 62701 at 7:00pm, Tuesday evening.


We are shocked, saddened, and pained by the horrific cold-blooded attack on Shabbat morning on our brothers and sisters - Jews of all walks of life who gathered Saturday at Chabad of Poway in celebration and prayer to the Almighty for Shabbat and the final day of Passover.

All attacks are painful. When it hits so close to home; a Jewish, Chabad House, it really shakes us to the core.

Thank you to everyone who reached out to make sure we felt safe.

Indeed, we mourn the holy soul of community trailblazer and activist Lori Gilbert-Kaye - Leah bat Reuven, of blessed memory. We pray for the healing of all the injured, including Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, 8-year-old Noya bat Eden (Dahan) and Almog ben Ruti (Peretz) visiting from Sderot, Israel.

We pray for the healing and comfort of their families, the entire Poway community, the Jewish people worldwide, and the entire world community - men, women and children of every type, each created in the image of the benevolent G-d whose hearts ache from senseless tragedies like these.


Even as we grieve and mourn, we must increase exponentially our acts of goodness and kindness.

Let's come together and add a little light. Light has the power to chase away darkness.

Today, add an extra Mitzvah. Wrap the Tefillin, hang a Mezuzah (openly displaying Jewish pride), drop a coin in Tzedakah, or add in any other act of goodness & kindness.

A hater has hated because they are Jews. Let's stand together as prouder Jews, stronger Jews, united Jews.

May G-d give strength to the people of Poway and all around the world. May we merit to the time of true peace in the entire world, with the coming of Moshiach now!
