Statements On The Mosque Shootings In Christchurch, New Zealand

The Jewish Federation of the Bluegrass joins the Jewish Council for Public Affairs and the Jewish Federations of North America in condemning the horrific shootings of Muslim worshipers in New Zealand, and we stand in loving solidarity with our Muslim friends.

From Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA): “We are devastated by the senseless hate-filled terror attack targeting two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch. Our Jewish community mourns the tragic loss of 49 innocent lives. We know all too well the price of terrorism, racism, and hatred. No person should ever have to fear attending a sacred place of worship. The xenophobia that led to this unspeakable bloodshed must be condemned in no uncertain terms by leaders worldwide and the public-at-large. Hatred and vitriol must have no place to manifest. We cannot allow it to continue to violate the moral and ethical core of our society.” (via Facebook, March 15, 2019)
