H.H.B. THE PATRIARCH OF JERUSALEM OFFERS HIS CONDOLENCES FOR THE VICTIMS OF THE PITTSBURGH SYNAGOGUE
The Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos III offers his deepest condolences to
those individuals and families who are mourning the loss of loved ones as a
result of the hateful targeting of innocent people engaged in prayer and
celebration at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday October
Such an act of terrorism is an attack on the whole of our civilization and values,
which The Patriarchate of Jerusalem resolutely condemns.
We join our prayers with millions around the world and ask that God would
bring comfort to victims and peace to our communities; with the only
consolation being that such heinous crimes of bigotry will only strengthen our
solidarity and resolve to protect fundamental liberties and freedom of worship.
