Tragedy in Israel
We are shocked and appalled by the horrific attack on innocent worshipers that took place in Jerusalem earlier today. As a community, we send our condolences to the families of the victims and wish a speedy recovery to the injured. This despicable and reprehensible act of terrorism took the lives of at least four innocent civilians and injured many others. Early reports suggest that several of the victims were American citizens, and some were rabbis.
The recent wave of terror attacks and acts of violence in Israel is outrageous and completely unacceptable, but today’s attack on innocent people praying in a synagogue is incomprehensible.
We call on the entire global community to join us in condemning this attack in the strongest possible terms, immediately and unconditionally.
We all stand together in our concern and support for the people of Israel and all peace-loving peoples throughout the region.
We pray for peace.
Michael M. Sonduck President & Chief Executive Officer
