Statement on the January 15 Attack anniversary

As we approach the first anniversary of the attack on Congregation Beth Israel and our community, we want to let everyone know that we are recovering. It has been a difficult and challenging year, but we are healing, grateful, strengthened and optimistic. To our friends in the community from all backgrounds; Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Unitarian Universalist, secular and religious, civilian and law enforcement, government and private – thank you for being here with us and for us. On that horrible day and the months that followed, you showed, by your actions and words, what Community is and what Community can be. We will never forget your many kindnesses and we again express our profound appreciation.

The attack on us was sparked by racism and antisemitism and fueled by often repeated racist, antisemitic tropes. Therefore, we continue to call on good Americans and all good people everywhere to speak out against racism, Jew hatred, and religious intolerance. When you hear it, challenge it. Don’t be silent in order to be polite. Let those who spew hate know hate is not welcome in our homes, our community, our nation, or our world.
