ICAN Statement on Anti-Semitic Attack at Tree of Life Synagogue

This morning a horrific act of pure evil shook the nation as Jewish Americans in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania were targeted, attacked, and murdered in their synagogue while celebrating the birth of a newborn baby boy.

Tonight, we are heartbroken as we grieve with the injured and the loved ones of those who were lost to this horrendous act. We express our gratitude to the brave law enforcement officers and first responders who prevented further loss of life, stopped the attack, and captured the killer.

ברוך דיין האמת
May their memory be a blessing.
