T’ruah Statement on the Jerusalem Synagogue Terror Attack

RELEASE DATE: November 18, 2014

T’ruah condemns today’s murderous attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem. We are horrified by all such acts of violence, especially when the targets are in the act of prayer in their house of worship. We call on Israeli and Palestinian leaders to immediately work together to create a Jerusalem that is safe and healthy for all her inhabitants, where all can pray peacefully “and there will be none to make them afraid.” (Micah 4:4)

May the memories of Moshe Twersky, Aryeh Kupinsky, Avraham Shmuel Goldberg, Kalman Zeev Levine, and Zidan Saif be for a blessing, and may their families know comfort and support among the mourners of Zion.
