Statement: Tree of Life Synagogue

Religions for Peace Australia is shocked and deeply saddened to hear of uncalled for attack and subsequent deaths at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburg during a family service. Religions for Peace Australia calls for people of all faiths to stand in solidarity with our Jewish Community as well as holding them in our prayers at this time. Due to the internet such deadly attacks spread fear across the world – for Jewish Communities in Australia and beyond. Unprovoked attacks on one religious community are an attack on us all.
