WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Stephen F. Lynch (MA-08) issued the following statement on the attack in the West Jerusalem synagogue that killed four people:

“We are painfully saddened at the loss of Rabbi Mosheh Twersky, Rabbi Aryeh Kopinsky, Rabbi Calman Levine, and Rabbi Avraham Goldberg who were brutally murdered during morning prayers today at Kehilat Bnei Torah in West Jerusalem.

These young Rabbis were men of peace who dedicated their lives to the service of others and the dignity of life itself. Our prayers also go out to the members of the Jewish community in Greater Boston who share a special connection with the Twersky family. Their loss affects us all.”
