This weekend, a man armed with three pistols and a semiautomatic assault-style rifle attacked The Tree of Life Congregation synagogue in Pittsburgh - the deadliest attack on Jews in the history of the United States. Our prayers go out to the victims and their families.

Hatred will not win! We stand with our Jewish sisters and brothers. An attack on them is an an attack on us. When one finger hurts, the whole hand hurts.
