We were rocked yesterday by the news of a terrorist attack at Jerusalem’s central bus station. A bomb planted by terrorists exploded, killing at least one and injuring more than 30 innocent Israelis. This heartless act is all the more painful as we’re still reeling from the heinous murders in Itamar. In a statement, OU President Dr. Simcha Katz and I condemn this cowardly act of terror perpetrated on innocent civilians and call upon the international community to join us by refusing to give legitimacy to such acts. You can read the statementhere. We pray for the speedy recovery of the injured and for peace in our land.
