Statement on the Tragedy in Mount Meron

Our hearts and thoughts are in Israel, as a night meant to be full of spirituality and joyfulness ended in devastating tragedy in Mount Meron. We join with Israelis, Jewish communities worldwide and all who are grieving for the lives lost, with the families who lost loved ones and for a nation in mourning today. In the midst of so much pain and suffering, our team in Israel is closely following what is happening and offering their support, including working to mobilize our ROI Community members.

May the memories of the deceased be for a blessing, may those affected by this immense tragedy find comfort, and may our communities come together to support those who are in need of healing and embrace. יהי זכרם ברוך
