Important Community Briefing on the Tragedy in Kansas City

April 14, 2014 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

To Our Friends and Supporters:

On this, the first day of Passover, we offer our deepest sympathies to our friends and extended family in Kansas City in the wake of the recent attack at the Overland Park JCC and Village Shalom facilities. As Jews, we are members of a unified community across the world and we share the tremendous pain and grief for those who were lost. We offer our condolences and support to all those in Kansas City affected by this senseless act.

Yesterday’s events are a terrible reminder of the need for ongoing vigilance for the safety of our campuses and facilities. Following the events in Kansas City, the Federation security team has been working closely with our agency leadership, as well as local law enforcement, to ensure the safety of our organizations. Providing for the security of the community remains our top priority, and our team will continue to maintain a strong presence at each of our partner organizations.

Tonight, the celebration of our escape from bondage will be especially poignant. We will remember how precious our freedom is, and—in keeping with the most basic tenet of our tradition—we will pray for tolerance, understanding and peace for all people across the world. Even in the wake of tragedy, we must remain grateful for the strength and richness of our community and of the joys we share with our family and friends.

On behalf of Federation, we wish you a peaceful and joyous Passover.
