Reform Jewish Leader Responds to Bomb Attacks in Israel

November 23, 2022 - This morning, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President of the Union for Reform Judaism, released the following statement:

We are sickened by this morning’s double terror attack in Jerusalem that killed 16-year-old Aryeh Schupak and injured dozens of others. This attack indiscriminately targeted people at bus stops and took the life of a teenager, reminding us of the horrific scenes of previous bus bombings. We send our condolences to the Schupak family and offer prayers for healing for all those injured. Our global Jewish family stands united against terror.
