Our Statement on the Attacks on Israel

Dear Friends,

The Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies condemns the murderous attacks on civilians in Israel by the terrorist group Hamas.
We share your utter outrage at these atrocities, and we share your grief.

President Biden’s support for Israel can be found here.

We stand with the people of Israel.
Our best wishes in this difficult time.
