A statement from Federation

The Jewish Federation of Jacksonville joins the worldwide Jewish community and the State of Israel in expressing its outrage and grief at the horrific terror attack at Har Nof Synagogue in Jerusalem, which resulted in the murder of three dual U.S.-Israeli nationals and one British-Israeli citizen. The cold-blooded and brutal attack on Jews gathered in prayer, wearing their tallit and tefillin (traditional prayer garb worn at times of worship), in violation of the sanctity of a holy place of worship is simply incomprehensible and unacceptable.

Federation stands alongside our brothers and sisters across the world and in Israel in condemnation of these senseless murders. We pray for the full recovery of the eight victims injured in the attack and we extend our deepest condolences to the families, friends and students of Rabbi Aryeh Kopinsky, Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg, Rabbi Calman Levine and Rabbi Moshe Twersky, zichronam livrakha. May they be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem and may the memories of the fallen forever be as a blessing.
