JCPA Condemns the Horrific Shooting at the Chabad of Poway

Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) condemns in the strongest possible terms the horrific shooting targeting the Chabad house during services this morning. Our hearts go out to the families of those who have been harmed and we pray for a quick recovery of those injured. We are alarmed by the dual threat of increasing hate crimes and gun violence in the US and around the world. We note this took place six months after the Pittsburgh massacre. We must do all we can to fight hate and anti-Semitism in this country and abroad.
