The NH Council of Churches shares this letter from the leaders of Temple Beth Abraham in Nashua, expressing their condolences and support following the church attacks in Sri Lanka on Sunday, April 21, 2019:
To Our Christian Friends:
On behalf of Temple Beth Abraham, the Jewish community centered in Nashua, we extend our condolences after the murders on Easter at churches and places of hospitality throughout Sri Lanka. We are horrified by these acts of hate and terror.
We have had to stand together too many times in recent months, as worshippers and people of particular faiths have been targeted. In October, it was a synagogue in the United States; in March, a mosque in New Zealand. To our Christian sisters and brothers, know that you have our support and that we are committed to praying and working together toward a world where divine love, expressed through our actions, overpowers hate rooted in any ideology.
L’shalom — Toward Peace,
Rabbi Jonathan Spira-Savett
