Rabbi David Cohen of Congregation Sinai in Fox Point spoke on June 21 at a Voces de le Frontera rally outside a Downtown Milwaukee federal immigration office. The rally was to protest President Donald Trump’s immigration policy.
Cohen quoted from the Torah, that “you shall … proclaim liberty throughout the land to all of its inhabitants.” He said his quote was in response to the attorney general quoting a Biblical verse to justify “really inhumane treatment.”
The rabbi noted that the verse he quoted is actually inscribed on the Liberty Bell.
Cohen also blew a shofar at the start and end of a walk that followed the rally. It was explained that the sound of a shofar can bring down walls.
