JCRC Condemns Hate Crime at Islamic Center

The following is a letter to Munir Gandevia, President of the Islamic Center of Burlington (MA).

 

Dear President Gandevia,

We were appalled by the grotesque acts of hatred defacing the Islamic Center earlier this week. An attack on one house of worship is an attack on all people of faith who cherish American values of freedom of religion and equality for all. As Jews, we are painfully aware of the destructive impact of bigotry and religious intolerance on a minority community. We are deeply pained that your sacred haven has been violated and stand in solidarity with your community at this difficult time.

Adam Suttin, President, JCRC
