Lantos Foundation Statement on Kehilat Bnei Torah Synagogue Attack

CONCORD, NH – Like the rest of the world, the Lantos Foundation is deeply troubled by the recent attack on Jewish worshipers at the Kehilat Bnei Torah synagogue in Jerusalem. While this vicious act of terror demands a strong, unequivocal, and directed response, we call on the world’s citizens and leaders to resist the effort to stoke greater hatred and violence as a result of this tragic event. We commend the examples set by those who have already resisted this urge, and we hope that others will not use this tragic event for their own selfish gains. Our prayers go out to the families of those murdered this week and to all victims of religious intolerance around the world.
