Statement on the Jerusalem Synagogue Attacks
JAC is appalled by the terrorist attacks at a Jerusalem synagogue that claimed the lives of five people -- including three Americans and one Canadian, who held Israeli citizenship -- and left other victims wounded during morning services. We stand with President Obama and the Administration condemning this violence in the strongest manner. We are united with Israel and Canada in our grief. Our hearts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those killed and injured. May their memory be a blessing.
These violent attacks will never advance the cause of peace, nor will they stop those dedicated to reaching it.
