Dear friends,

We write to you with heavy hearts, yet with unwavering resolve as we stand in solidarity with Israel. In the wake of yesterday’s Iranian attack, our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Israel as they navigate these challenging times.

As members of Congregation Shaarey Zedek and the Jewish community, we understand the profound importance of unity and support during moments of adversity. We come together now as a Jewish family to lend our unwavering support to Israel and its people.

Our commitment to Israel is not merely political or geographical; it is deeply rooted in our faith and heritage. As Isaiah proclaimed, "For Zion's sake, I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem's sake, I will not be quiet." Let us echo these words in our prayers and actions, refusing to remain silent in the face of adversity and injustice.

In the coming days and weeks, let us pray for the safety of all those affected by the recent attack.

We reaffirm our commitment to Israel's right to defend itself against all threats to its sovereignty and security.

In solidarity and with prayers for peace.

Am Israel Chai.
