Deep Sympathy

The Jewish Studies Program recognizes that the antisemitic murders carried out at Tree of Life synagogue marks a horrific moment in Jewish history. This attack comes in the midst of a major increase in antisemitic attacks against Jews and Jewish institutions during the past two years, and we stand with others who are also under attack, especially African-Americans, Latinos, LGBTQ, Muslims, Sikhs, and the many refugees and asylum seekers who come to our country.
