Jewish Federations Condemn Terrorist Attack in Jerusalem

November 18, 2014

In response to today’s horrific attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem, where Palestinian terrorists killed at least four Jewish worshippers, The Jewish Federations of North America called on the global community to join in condemning those responsible. President and CEO Jerry Silverman and Michael Siegal, Chair of the Board of Trustees, issued the following statement:

“The Jewish Federations of North America is shocked by the horrific attack on innocent worshippers that took place in Jerusalem earlier today. We send condolences to the families of the victims and wish a speedy recovery to the injured. This ‎despicable and reprehensible act of terrorism took the lives of at least four innocent civilians and injured many others. Early reports suggest that several of the victims were American citizens, and some were rabbis. All of the victims were wearing tallitot and tefillin.

"The recent wave of Palestinian terror attacks and acts of violence in Israel is outrageous and completely unacceptable, but today’s attack on innocent people praying in a synagogue is incomprehensible. We call on the entire global community to join us in condemning this attack in the strongest possible terms, immediately and unconditionally.”
