Message from the Co-Chairs - Responding together following Chabad of Poway attack and other recent attacks
Our thoughts and prayers are with those killed and injured in the murderous attack at the Chabad of Poway Synagogue in California.
As we and the Moderators of IFN's Faith Communities Forum have said after the attacks in Pittsburgh USA, Christchurch NZ and Sri Lanka, "such attacks on places of worship are a reminder of the need to condemn extremist violence in the strongest terms and to stand together and to continue to work together with ever greater urgency against ignorance, prejudice and hatred. Hatred targeting any community because of its faith and belief is a scourge that cannot be tolerated. There must be freedom for all communities to worship and practise their faith freely and without fear."
Rt Revd Richard Atkinson and Jatinder Singh Birdi, Co-Chairs, Inter Faith Network for the UK
