Sunday Sentence

In which I participate in David Abrams’s “Sunday Sentence” project, sharing the best sentence I’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

True, the attack was unsuccessful, and was carried out (deliberately?) when our house of worship was unoccupied but it takes little imagination to picture a different scenario, scenes from the Jewish historical rolodex of fires burning Torahs and humans together.
