Rabbi Cohen blows shofar at immigration rally


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.

Rabbi David Cohen

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.
