In a statement, ISNA President Dr. Sayyid M. Syeed said:
“We grieve the loss of innocent lives from this tragic incident. A place of worship is a place of refuge. We stand in solidarity with our Jewish sisters and brothers in speaking out against anti-semitism.”
Today’s shooting is an example of the rising anti-semitism and bigotry as well as the epidemic of gun violence. ISNA remains committed to addressing anti-semitism, Islamophobia, and other forms of hatred.
ISNA has joined the Muslim Youth of North America (MYNA) to partner with the Reform Action Center (RAC) and The North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY) to spearhead Muslim-Jewish advocacy trainings and actions on gun legislation at the state and federal level.
