Response to Attack on Kitchener Synagogue, 3 June 2024

The recent attack on the synagogue of the Beth Jacob Congregation in Kitchener must be condemned by all peace-loving people in our community. At Interfaith Grand River (IGR) we are working to build peaceful relations and enriched understanding among all religions and cultures that co-exist in our region. We strengthen the relationships among us here in our local region by not using the policies and actions of foreign political governments to divide us. To create a healthy and just community where everyone can flourish, violence of any kind, verbal or physical, can never be condoned and should always be actively opposed. The members of Interfaith Grand River (IGR) stand with our friends at Beth Jacob Congregation and we condemn this act of violent anti-semitism.

Jay Moore

President, Interfaith Grand River
