The congregation of United Churches of Langley extends our prayerful solidarity to the Jewish Community following the tragedy in Pittsburgh on Saturday, October 27th. 

We weep with the faith community at Tree of Life Synagogue and share their determination to be resilient against any threats to divide those who seek peace and wholeness for our world. The senseless hatred shocks us all.

 

From The United Church of Canada

The United Church of Canada is profoundly saddened and outraged at the attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: "The United Church of Canada denounces such acts of terror perpetrated in the name of religion as well as the rhetoric and worldviews that make them possible... We offer our prayers that together we may build a world where all are treated with dignity and respect."
