Statement on the events in Israel

Oct 14, 2023

This past week has been exceedingly difficult for all of us as we reflect on the horrific scale of the Hamas terrorist attacks in Israel and follow the resulting war and scenes of human suffering.

We stand in solidarity with members of our Jewish community who have been deeply affected by the violence in Israel, compounded by the continuing threats to their safety amid rising antisemitism and calls for violence in our communities. We cannot look the other way. There can be no justification for acts of terrorism and the murder and kidnapping of innocent civilians. We stand firmly against antisemitism and hate of any kind.

Our thoughts are with our Jewish colleagues and communities in particular, and with everyone impacted by the attacks of October 7, 2023, including innocent civilians in Gaza. We hope and pray for peace.
