Well said!

time to look inwards and care for each and every student

Sorry to say this but we need to look at students in a different way and stop EXPELLING students from our schools so easily and without an alternate plan for them IN PLACE. I’m not saying its never the solution but the Yeshiva my son grew up in (here in Crown Heights) Expelled my son during his Mesivta years and about two or three friends during his Yeshiva years. One of his friends either overdosed or committed suicide and is no longer with us 🙁 We need to look at the whole student and his circumstances, and if all they… Read more »

If there is a child that wants to shoot people that attend a certain school, he will find a way to get in,, even if you have to be buzzed in

Only Jewish Schools keep their doors locked, and Daycares. High Schools do not keep their doors locked and Public High Schools are often a series of exits and entrances, sometimes they have multiple buildings and kids come and go as they please. For example my Freshman class had over 1,000 students. Now this school had over 3,000 students. This is very different than our small town Jewish Schools that have maybe 100 kids attending the high school.

He didn’t need to be buzzed in, he just got in.

BH in our schools, no matter how hurt a student may be, we have never had such an occurrence. Instead they talk, campaign, try to make changes and make things better. Perhaps this can serve as a lesson- does it need to take a shooting for a student to be heard? Appreciate that our students are not using any violence against others, ever, no matter how much pain they’re in. Too many though have made the choice to use violence against themselves, ending their precious lives way too young. Open up, show that you care and what to hear, so… Read more »

4 jewish children
1 adult jew. Teacher
Of course all 17 were tragically murdered and mourned.
This was a very disturbed expelled student
And obtained the weapon. Legally.
Mental health issue is the most serious issue

Yes!
they need to reform where it counts the most
and so do we all
we need to be careful what we and our children watch and are involved with
Read what the Rebbe said about TVs

Moment of Silence

the Rebbe’s approach to prevent such things and shifting the mind set of the youth growing up in western culture.
TV, violent movies and video games don’t help the situation either as the Rebbe stated.

apparantly this boy had been expelled from the school. If that is in fact true, then there was an issue which may have not been dealt with. If they expell instead of trying to have the family and school social workers (etc) work it out, then they are just sending the “problems” away from themselves. although I don’t know the full story, I’m just saying that sometimes expelling is just passing off the problem

TEACHERS

ALL TEACHERS SHOULD CARRY GUNS THATS THE ONLY OPTION !!!!

Tragic
February 15, 2018 10:25 am

Of course it’s not the guns: “guns don’t kill people, people kill people…” But somehow there are far fewer school shootings in other Western countries where guns are not as easily accessible and there isn’t a culture of gun ownership.
This aggravating. So sad. I feel horrible for the families. Baruch dayan ha’emes.

February 15, 2018 12:44 am

How the heck did he get into the skool??

Chabad is right there
February 14, 2018 11:29 pm

So glad to see Chabad is there. My non jewish freind called me crying wondering how to help the family. His son knew Sondra well and would walk with her to school. His son was trapped in the school for 90 mins waiting for the police. Needless to say he is totally distraught and messed up about the death of his Jewish friend. We need to pray for all involved. What a tragedy.

AWFUL :-(. Names for Jewish victims for tehillim?
