Greater Miami Jewish Federation, JCRC and RAGM React to the Continuing Terror Attacks in Israel

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation, its Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami (RAGM) are saddened and outraged by the continuation of terror attacks in Israel. On Thursday, April 7, 2022, three people were murdered and at least 10 others wounded in this most recent attack perpetrated by a gunman who opened fire on a crowded Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv. This tragic incident is one of several attacks that have taken place across Israel in the last few weeks.

The violence appears to have initially been started, at least in part, as an effort to disrupt the budding normalization and cooperation between Israel and many Muslim and Arab countries that was initiated by the Abraham Accords and continued recently at the historic Negev Summit.

We remain steadfast in unequivocally supporting Israel’s right to defend and keep its civilians safe from internal and external threats and to do everything necessary to end the recent escalation of terror attacks.

Federation offers our deepest condolences to the families of those who died. We also extend wishes for a speedy and full recovery to those wounded. Further, we condemn violent extremism unequivocally in all forms and express our respect and admiration for the resilience of the citizens of Israel in the face of such horrific acts of terror.
