Colorado Jewish Community Condemns Terror Attacks in New Zealand

The Colorado Jewish community extends its heartfelt prayers to the Muslim community of Christchurch, New Zealand and around the world after the horrific terror attack there on two mosques. We mourn the senseless loss of at least 50 innocent lives and pray for the recovery of all those injured.

Once again our world is faced with the devastation of tragedy stemming from discrimination and fear. Our Jewish community knows all too well the price paid dearly from racism and hatred.

JEWISHcolorado, the Jewish Community Relations Council, Rocky Mountain Rabbinical Council and the Anti-Defamation League stand united in our condemnation of this horrific terrorist attack. The distance between our countries does not diminish the pain that we feel. No one should ever have to fear attending a sacred place of worship. 

We stand united with the Muslim community. We extend our support, love and solidarity to all those impacted, and we pray for the end of racism and violence everywhere.
