Newton Upstanders Statement on the Violence in Israel and Gaza

Newton Upstanders shares in the horror and grief over the recent violence in Israel and Gaza. We grieve the loss of life and the trauma suffered by Israelis in the Hamas terrorist attack and in the days that have followed. We grieve the loss of life and the trauma being suffered by Palestinians under the Israeli military siege in Gaza. We grieve for a region and a world too filled with hate and injustice, and for those in our community and beyond who are impacted by this shared tragic reality. We hope that as everyone processes these events they can listen to one another with compassion, empathy, and respect. Most of all, we hope for lasting peace and justice.

Peace | Salaam (سلام) | Shalom (שׁלום)
