PIIN Response to the Shooting at Tree of Life

“The hate that has defined our nation recently, came to one of PIIN’s congregations this morning. Congregation Dor Hadash calls the Tree of Life synagogue home, and the prayers of all PIIN members are with them at this horrible time.

“As an interfaith, social justice organization that has long supported immigrant and refugee communities, the hatred that motivated Robert Bowers is unconscionable to us, and a reminder that the veins of anti-semitism and xenophobia run deep in our society.

“We must therefore redouble our efforts to extinguish such hate. We must hold the souls of the eleven people murdered today firm in our hearts, and we pray that their light will guide us as we march on for justice.”
