Attend ‘A Community’s Response to Hate’

Print Article

Join us at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 409 4th Ave. E. in Polson at 11:15 a.m. this Sunday, March 2 for a presentation by Pastor David Rommereim and Rabbi Allen Secher, both of Whitefish.

This event is in response to activities of a Montana neo-Nazi group. Rabbi Secher and his wife, Ina Albert, were instrumental in the founding of a Human Rights organization, “Love Lives Here” in 2008.

Recently, in Whitefish, as a result of vitriolic anti -Semitism expressed through the efforts of Richard Spencer and The Daily Stormer, Ina and Allen have been the targets of world-wide hate expressions. The cyber attack on the Whitefish Jewish community was the first of its kind on Jews in the United States.

Allen is a rabbi whose dossier includes portfolios as a radio and television producer, a professional actor, an author, an administrator with experience developing and managing television stations, an executive producer of seven Emmy-awarding winning programs, an on-air radio and television talent, a lecturer on American films, and a Freedom rider. His career covers a broad spectrum of life experiences.

David is the founder of an inter-faith group, seeking to learn from each other in hopes of stemming hatred in our culture. Both he and Allen are great storytellers and stimulate conversations to help us all move forward in an increasingly hostile culture.

— Connie Brownell, Polson
