OU Expresses Grief for Victims of Terrorist Attack
Posted on 08/19/11 | Comments (1)
The Orthodox Union expresses its grief at the loss of life and injury caused by yesterday’s terrorist attacks in Israel, and extends our sympathy and shared pain to all those who lost their lives and were injured, as well as to their families.
We currently have an all female bus of Ger Chasidim under our sponsorship in Israel. They are all safe, and extra security measures have been taken at the request of the Ger Rebbe. We especially want to express our sympathies to them, and to their families on the missile that fell on the Gerer Yeshiva in Ashdod and the students who were severely injured, including the grandson of the Ashdod Rebbe.
Dr. Simcha Katz, President
