JTA: 139 Jewish day school leaders sign letter calling for action after Parkland shooting

March 6, 2018

The heads of 139 Jewish day schools have signed an open letter urging action following last month’s deadly shooting at a Florida high school.

The letter released Tuesday expresses support for the student movement calling for gun reform and seeks political change. Prizmah, a group representing over 300 Jewish day schools, organized the letter.

The schools that signed on are from the United States and Canada, and represent various denominations and affiliations. They include those with students from early childhood through high school.
