JVP Boston Mourns Jerusalem Deaths of Palestinians and Israelis
We join national Jewish Voice for Peace and people around the world in mourning the deaths of Palestinians and Israelis killed in escalating Jerusalem violence. The most recent attack, on worshipers in a synagogue, affects the Boston-area community: We extend our condolences to the family of Rabbi Moshe Twersky, 59, who graduated from Brookline’s Maimonides School in 1973.
Please read the following statement from national Jewish Voice for Peace:
Jewish Voice for Peace is deeply alarmed at the crisis building in Jerusalem over the last several weeks as terrible violence mounts. We mourn all the lives that have been lost, both Palestinian and Israeli. Early this morning, four Jews at prayer were brutally murdered in a Jerusalem synagogue and on Sunday a Palestinian bus driver was likely lynched.
