CUSJ denounces “horrific hate crime” against faith community in Squirrel Hill

CUSJ members, and people of good faith everywhere, are shocked and saddened by the shooting of eleven worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pennsylvania on Saturday, October 27 2018.

CUSJ President sent the Rabbi this message:

Dear Rabbi Hazzan Myers and members of the congregation,
Canadian Unitarians for Social Justice send our deepest sympathies to the family members and congregants of the Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha synagogue who have lost loved ones in a callous, anti-Semitic attack in your sacred worship space.
We denounce this horrific hate crime against our Jewish brothers and sisters and stand with you in sorrow and solidarity as you lay to rest eleven beloved members of your congregation. In our shared humanity we acknowledge that what affects one, affects all.
May you come together as a community of love, strength and resilience in the days to come.
May the peace of God’s love be with you.
