It is with heartfelt sadness and determined resolve we join the worldwide community in one voice to condemn the recent terrorist attacks in France. In solidarity, the Jewish Federation of Dutchess County mourns the innocent victims of this past week’s violence and prays for those injured.
““We deplore these violent attacks,” stated Michael Siegal, chair of JFNA’s Board of Trustees, “not just against Jews and Jewish institutions but against the people of France and all those who value freedom and democracy.”
Together, with other Jewish Federations around the world, we stand united.
