“The news out of Pittsburgh this morning is absolutely heartbreaking and shakes me to my core. Anti-Semitism and hatred have no place in our country, and we must now come together as one people to denounce these acts. I am grateful for the first responders who rushed towards the sounds of danger.
No American should live in fear that their place of worship might come under attack. As a former minister, my prayers and sympathies are with the Rabbi, congregants, and community at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.”
