JAC Statement on the Tragedy in New Zealand

Friday, March 15, 2019

Whether it is in a synagogue, church or a mosque, religious violence hurts everyone.

JAC stands with the Muslim community in New Zealand and the Muslim communities across the world during this horrific time.

We can never allow religious hatred to divide and weaken us. We must be resolute in our efforts to fight bigotry and continue to strive for tolerance and understanding.

The victims and their families will be in our prayers tonight as we usher in Shabbat.
