Following the horrible attack on the Chabad of Poway, which prosecutors are now calling a hate crime, where 60-year-old Lori Gilbert Kay was killed and others wounded, the Jewish Federation of the Greater San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys released the subsequent statement:

“The Jewish Federation of the Greater San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys and our local Jewish community denounces and condemns the attack that took place [on April 27] at the Chabad of Poway. Our hearts and thoughts go to the families of those who were murdered and to those who were injured in this senseless act of violence.

“’An act such as this, in a holy place of worship and at the conclusion of Passover, was not only carried out on the Jewish world, but also on the religious world as a whole. Every time an attack occurs at a house of worship, a place for prayers and peace, it is an attack on the entire religious world,’ expresse[d] Jason Moss, executive director of the Jewish Federation of the Greater San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys.”
