Our hearts break for Israel and every human being impacted by the terror and violence of the past few days. The pain of this war is insurmountable as these horrific events tear at the lives of friends, families, siblings, and those who we’re connected to simply because they are part of our global Jewish family. We stand in solidarity and sadness with the global Jewish community, and we remain committed to supporting initiatives that promote peace, cooperation, and understanding.
While we endeavor to tell the stories of Jewish joy and celebration, we know the grief, hurt, outrage, and many other feelings that arise in moments of unprecedented pain. If a creative outlet is helpful at this moment, please share any of your art and writing at Jewish&, where we remember the real hearts, souls, and lives at the center of this tragedy.
From around the world, in every voice, we extend our sympathies to those who have lost loved ones, and whose loved ones are missing or still unaccounted for.
In hope for peace and healing,
The statement above was sent to Be’chol Lashon’s newsletter mailing list on Monday, October 9 in response to the war in Israel.
