Our congregation notes with alarm the recent rise of anti-Semitic expression and violence, particularly in parts of Europe but also locally. It seems that some individuals and groups are using the excuse of the terrible events in Israel and Gaza to malign and terrorize people simply for being Jewish. We join together as a unified community, not only to support Israel and lasting peace throughout the region, but also to support Jews everywhere to be treated with respect and dignity and to be protected by their governments. 

Am Yisrael Chai. The people of Israel lives. May peace reign down from the heavens and may all of us be pursuers of peace.
