Solidarity with the Muslim Community

15 March 2019

The Jewish Communities of Scotland have issued the following statement after today's attack on two mosques in New Zealand and the murder of many worshippers:

We are writing to you on behalf of the Jewish communities of Scotland to offer our heartfelt condolences after the tragic murder of worshippers at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques in New Zealand, earlier today.

This is a dark time for your community, and we share your grief and horror at the premeditated killing of innocent men, women, and children.

Too often in recent years we have witnessed these hateful attacks, where innocents have been targeted and persecuted because of their religious beliefs.

We extend our sympathies to all who have suffered both physically and emotionally. May they find comfort, strength, and fortitude from their faith, family and community as they walk the difficult path to recovery.

And may they also be assured that the solidarity and support of the Jewish people goes with them at this difficult time.
