Our Deepest Sympathies

Dear friends,
We were brought to our knees by the hate and violence that claimed eleven lives in a synagogue in Pittsburgh this Saturday. We write today to extend our deepest sympathies to all those who lost loved ones, to the members of the Tree of Life synagogue, and to our friends at HIAS who have long stood up for immigrants and refugees from all over the world. We hold onto the hope that young people will lead us away from this darkness by demanding that we recognize and embrace our shared humanity.

With love and solidarity,
all of us at the Young Center
