The Jewish Community Council of Montreal joins with all those across the globe, in prayer and mourning for the victims, those who were injured and their families in Paris this past Friday. We stand united with all of them during these trying times. In the current wave of violence across the world, we pray for peace and safety for all.
Israel continues to get attacked on a daily basis. Just this past Friday, a family travelling to celebrate the upcoming Shabbat in preparation of their daughter's wedding was attacked, killing the father and son whilst injuring the rest of the family.
We stand with them and our hearts go out to those who have come under attack and who live in fear on a daily basis.
May we see shalom - peace as well as the opportunity for all Israelis to continue living their lives in tranquility and without fear.
Let’s carry out acts of kindness to our fellowman and make the world a better and kinder place.
