‘Broken hearts’ march honors victims at Solano College

ROCKVILLE — More than 70 people with red paper hearts over their chests marched in the “No More Broken Hearts” peace walk and summit Tuesday at Solano Community College.

Each replica heart was “broken” down the middle. The name of a loved one who died from an act of violence was written on each heart.

“The idea is that we want to stop the violence so there are no more broken hearts,” said Karen McCord, coordinator of the Ethnic Studies program at Solano College.

McCord said she borrowed the idea of a symbolic broken heart from Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president . . .

Solano Jews gather for start of Passover

VACAVILLE — The fifth annual Chabad Solano County Passover Seder went on as planned Monday in spite of deadly violence Sunday outside a Jewish community center in the Midwest.

There was no reason it shouldn’t, said Rabbi Chaim Zaklos, citing text of thanksgiving from the Haggadah, a Jewish text that sets for the order of the Passover Seder.

“The Jewish people are still around to tell the story (of the Passover),” he said. “God protects us. God saves us.”
