On behalf of our worldwide Maccabi Family in Diaspora and Israel, we express profound shock and outrage at the anti-Semitic massacre on Shabbat in the Etz Hayim Synagogue at Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh.
We convey our heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this terrible crime. Our hearts are with them at this painfully difficult time. We trust that they will take such comfort and consolation as may be found in the vivid memories of their loved ones, and the sympathy so many people in so many countries feel for them. May they be comforted amongst the mourners of Zion and know no more suffering.
Maccabi World Union expresses total solidarity with the Jewish Community in Pittsburgh, and in all of the United States. We applaud the forthright stance of American political leaders, federal, state, city and local civic Authorities, and the effective mobilization and vigilant action and Law Enforcement agencies against the scourge of terrorism in all its forms. Above all, we trust that the Jews in the United States will find courage and strength to overcome the ordeal inflicted on them, and the wisdom to advance in the noble path of Judaism and Zionism. May Peace be upon you and the whole House of Israel!
With our deepest sympathy and highest respect,
JACK TERPINS,Sao Paulo AMIR PELED,Tel Aviv
