DALLAS — Jason Yates, CEO of My Faith Votes, issues the following statement regarding the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh:
“The murder of 11 Jews today isn’t just an attack on the Jewish community, but an assault on all Americans. This act of pure evil struck at America’s foundational value of religious liberty. No person should ever face persecution or violence for their faith. Our hearts and prayers are with the families of the victims and we are praying for the recovery of the six individuals who were wounded. People of faith — every faith — share in mourning with the Tree of Life Congregation.”
