Message from Federation President, Lisa Miller

 

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Jewish Federation of Western CT, we wish to express our sincere condolences to the Jewish Community of France, and indeed, all of France, on the loss of lives in the two recent terror attacks in Paris.   

 

We are profoundly saddened by the brutal murders of the four members of the French Jewish community in the deadly siege at the Hyper Cacher Kosher Market as well as the victims of the Charlie Hebdo shooting. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Yoav Hattab, Yohan Cohen, Philippe Braham and Francois-Michel Saada as well as to the entire French Jewish Community.   

 

At this difficult time, the Jewish Federation of Western CT stands in solidarity with the 500,000 strong French Jewish Community, the families and friends of the victims of the Charlie Hebdo shooting and the entire nation of France.

 

Sincerely,  

Lisa Miller

Board President
