In the aftermath of the massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history, NILA stands in solidarity with our local Jewish community, united against hatred and bigotry in all of its forms.
Statement from The Reverend Lynn Pries, President of NILA, delivered at the Interfaith Solidarity Program held at Congregation Beth Shalom on November 4, 2018:
"One of the purposes of NILA is to stand strong in the face of acts such as this, acts of prejudice, acts of antisemitism, acts of Islamophobia. As president of NILA, I condemn the killer, I condemn the acts of antisemitism, and those who created hateful lies that encouraged the murderer. As the president of NILA, I stand with the Jewish community to offer the full support of our association."
