As Holocaust survivors and descendants of Holocaust survivors, we are outraged and saddened that, once again, a Jewish community was brazenly attacked during worship services on Shabbat, which was also the last day of Passover. We send our deepest condolences to all affected by this tragedy, and prayers of healing and for a full recovery — refuach shelayma — to all.
