Agudath Israel of America Statement on San Diego Attack

Once again, a Jewish house of worship was the scene of hate-fueled bloodshed, when a man, reportedly a white supremacist, attacked those gathered for prayers at a Poway, California synagogue on the final day of Passover.   

Agudath Israel extends its condolences to the family and friends of Lori Gilbert Kaye, killed in yesterday’s attack, and prays for the speedy recovery of those wounded, including the synagogue’s leader, Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein.  

Such evil acts of violence and the attitudes that lead to them must be condemned by all civilized people, and should reinforce the need to fight hatred wherever it rears its ugly head and do whatever we can to protect houses of worship and other targets of malign individuals.
