Federation Mourns Massacre of Members of the Fogel Family and Condemns Brutal Terrorist Attack on Israelis

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation and its Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) mourn the gruesome murders of Udi (37), Ruth (36), Yoav (10), Elad (4) and three-month-old Hadas Fogel Friday night, March 11, in their home. This brutal terrorist attack on a sleeping family is shocking and horrific, and aimed at intimidating Israeli Jewish families and derailing the peace process. In the words of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, “There has never been anything like this in which terrorists entered a home and cut children’s throats.”

“Our hearts go out to the Fogel family and their loved ones. Together with the people of Israel and all people of goodwill everywhere, we embrace and support the three surviving children and the other members of the Fogel family,” said Barbara Black Goldfarb, Federation Board Chair. Regina Zelonker, Federation JCRC Chair added, “We call for an end to the incitement that encourages these attacks and pray for the senseless, hateful, terrorist violence to stop.”

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation is working with our overseas partner, the Jewish Agency for Israel, and its Fund for Victims of Terror, to assess the needs of the Fogel family and to ensure that they are met.
