    Gainesville, FL – Today marks a week since four Jewish people were killed inside a Kosher Supermarket in France. Tonight, a special service and dinner to remember those victims was held at the Lubavitch Chabad Jewish Center in Gainesville.

    Twelve people also died after a shooting at the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper.

    Rabbi Berl Goldman with the center calls the attacks “unimaginable and unexplainable”. He’s calling on not only the Jewish community in Gainesville – but everyone – do a good deed to make up for these acts. Goldman said, “everybody in Gainesville and everybody around the world would do, would accept to do one good deed in response to this tragedy and terrible, terrible acts of violence, I believe the world would be comforted, the families would be comforted, and terrorism would lose this battle.”

    Goldman says the attacks hurt the Jewish community the most because they were just before the onset of the Shabbat observance.

      There were six (6) Jews that were murdered. Why aren’t they mentioned?

      Elsa Cayat, 54, psychoanalyst and columnist of Jewish religion.[100][101] The only woman killed at Charlie Hebdo’ Paris headquarters.[102] Appearing on CNN, Cayat’s cousin speculated about the killing, stating the killers “spared all the women, and she was the only one killed, and she was the only one [of the women who was] Jewish”, and that Cayat had been receiving anonymous phone calls for a while, being told, “[D]irty Jew you should stop working for Charlie Hebdo otherwise we’re gonna kill you.”[101]
