California state Senate leader Darrell Steinberg said that following a recent massacre at Fort Hood and vandalism at a local synagogue, people must "fight for peace."
"As an active member of my local Jewish community, a longtime supporter of the local Muslim and broader interfaith community, I invite all Sacramento to join hands and continue our fight for peace and to rise above the fundamental differences within our various faiths," Steinberg said.
Steinberg joined local interfaith community leaders Friday at the Sacramento Area League of Associated Muslims Center in Sacramento for afternoon prayer services. Other speakers included Imam Mohammed Abdul-Azeez from SALAM, Rev. Faith Whitmore from St. Mark's United Methodist Church and Bill Lackemacher from the Sacramento ACLU.
A vandal drew a swastika on the temple at Congregation Beth Shalom early Tuesday, on the anniversary of attacks on Jews in Germany and Austria.
