Our Statement


With deepest apologies for the intrusion into our Shabbat and our Chaggim, we are writing amidst the unfortunate reality of today’s attacks in Israel.
As many of you are likely aware, Israelis awoke this morning to a widespread and calculated Hamas attack resulting in Israelis being taken hostage and thousands of Hamas rockets hitting southern and central Israel.  As of the writing of this message we are aware of over 250 deaths in Israel and are outraged at this latest attack on Israeli civilians. 
Our hearts go out to the people of Israel who face yet another assault on their safety and well-being.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.  In our own community we offer our full support to our Israeli families – in concert with all those who have relatives and friends working and living in Israel. 
We unequivocally condemn these acts of violence and terror against the State of Israel. The deliberate targeting of innocent civilians by Hamas is unacceptable and must be condemned by the international community, especially as Israel works to defend itself against these attacks.
