A Jewish Community Relations Council Statement on the Mount Meron Tragedy in Israel
The Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle mourns the victims of the Mount Meron tragedy that occurred in Northern Israel last week during a Lag B’Omer celebration. May each of their memories be for a blessing. Though last week’s disaster was thousands of miles away, the heaviness it has brought to our hearts is a reminder that while we are many Jewish communities, we are one people—bound together by shared values, including kol yisrael arevim zeh la zeh. All in the house of Israel are responsible for one another. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones of those killed, including loved ones right here in the Puget Sound Region.
Shavuot will be here on May 16-18. Looking for an event or ideas for celebrating? Check out your Federation’s one-stop guide. Chag Shavuot Sameach!
