Federation Extends Condolences to the Sikh Community

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff of the Jewish Federation of San Diego County we would like to express our heartfelt condolences to the families of the six Sikhs murdered in a heinous attack on their temple near Milwaukee. We are outraged over this inhuman assault and its effect on Sikhs not only in Milwaukee, but also in San Diego and throughout the world.  Violence against a house of worship is an assault on the core values that lie at the foundation of American society.

We maintain a strong commitment to tolerance and respect for all the religious traditions in our great country.  The tragedy in Milwaukee shows painfully the need for Americans of all faiths to learn about one another and embrace the diverse religious tapestry of the United States.

It is with the deepest sympathy that we with and extend our prayers to the Sikh community following this weekend’s deadly attack.
