The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is horrified and heartbroken by the brutal terror attack in Bnei Brak that resulted in the loss of five innocent lives. This follows two fatal attacks in Israel, taking 11 Israeli lives, in recent days.

There is no justification for these continued incitements of violence that are being perpetuated by extremists. We stand with Israel and the Israelis who continue to combat these acts of aggression. As the country and loved ones mourn, we pray for them and for those who those were senselessly murdered. 

May their memories be for a blessing.
