Message from Kehillah Co-Chairs on violence in Israel and Gaza
This is a deeply saddening and distressing period in Israel/Palestine. Our hearts are broken from the news that hundreds of Israeli civilians have been murdered or taken as hostages in Hamas’ attacks. We know that this is an anxious time for the many Kehillah members with friends and family in Israel: our thoughts are with you. As a community, we have each other for support – please check in on and reach out to one another for comfort. We are dismayed at the escalation of violence – including civilian deaths in Gaza – and pray for its swift end, along with peace for all Israelis and Palestinians.
