The president and the Rabbi shared a powerful moment but it remains unclear if Trump will push to reintroduce the moment back into school.
The heroic rabbi who was wounded in the California synagogue shooting last Saturday said President Trump is supportive of reintroducing a "moment of silence" back into public schools.
Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, who wasn't on the official schedule, was invited by Trump to the podium at the service for the National Day of Prayer. As Trump stated: “There was no one who expressed the horror and beauty of what you represent better than you did.”
Goldstein, with bandages on his hands, recalled the horrific moment the shooter entered his synagogue. And he said one thing that will help the healing is bringing back the moment of silence in school.
"Children [are] not growing up with values that our Founding Fathers started," he said. "Something seems fundamentally wrong when there's a generation of kids growing up doing what they're doing."
