JERUSALEM — Rabbi Tuly Weisz, director of Israel365 and editor of The Israel Bible, issues the following statement in response to Saturday’s shooting at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh:
“There is a long, bloody history of Jews being murdered in our houses of worship. What is new is that this is happening in America in 2018. It is jarring, horrible and should be a wake-up call that terror needs to be obliterated everywhere.
“People all over the world must stand together against religiously motivated terrorism.
“As an Orthodox rabbi who has dedicated his life to building bridges between Jews and our Christian friends, I call on lovers of Israel everywhere to stand in unity and pray for these families whose loved ones were killed, and to fulfill the words of the Prophet Isaiah, ‘Comfort, oh comfort My people, says your God.’”
