Jewish faith leaders joined a call for soul searching in the wake of the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. "This tragedy has spurred a sorely needed time of soul searching and national public dialogue about violent and vitriolic political rhetoric," said the open letter to Congress signed by 50 Muslim, Jewish and Christian leaders appearing Thursday in Roll Call, a newspaper that covers Congress. "We strongly support this reflection, as we are deeply troubled that rancor, threats and incivility have become commonplace in our public debates."
