Board of Deputies condemns massacre of innocent worshippers at Pittsburgh synagogue

Board of Deputies of British Jews President Marie van der Zyl has condemned the appalling attack on innocent worshippers at a synagogue in the United States.

She said: ‘Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families of the innocent worshippers gunned down in cold blood at a Pittsburgh synagogue. It is particularly chilling to hear reports that the shooter said “all these Jews need to die”. The UK Jewish community stands in solidarity with everyone affected in the US.’
