The Greater Miami Jewish Federation and its Jewish Community Relations Council Strongly Denounce this Week’s Acts of Extremism in Israel

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation and its Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) are outraged by the heinous terror attacks committed in Israel this week. We condemn the murderous hate crimes perpetrated during the stabbing attack that injured six Israelis at the 14th annual Jerusalem March for Pride and Tolerance and in the firebombing in Duma, a Palestinian village in the West Bank, which killed an 18-month-old Palestinian baby and severely injured his parents and siblings.
