STATEMENT ON COPENHAGEN ATTACK

 

The Jewish Federations of North America are shocked and grieved following yesterday’s attacks on the Krystalgade Synagogue and the cultural center in Copenhagen that has left at least two people dead - including Dan Uzan, a Jewish volunteer security guard - and others injured.

 

Michael Siegal, chair of JFNA’s Board of Trustees stated, “We are once again horrified by these violent attacks against Jews and Jewish institutions as well as those meeting peacefully to discuss the value of freedom of speech. The disturbing recent pattern of Jews being murdered in Europe, simply because they are Jews, must be condemned by people and governments across the world. We send our deepest condolences to the families of Dan Uzan and the other victims, and wish a speedy recovery to those injured, including numerous police officers.

“The Jewish community of North America stands shoulder to shoulder in firm solidarity with our Jewish brothers and sisters in Denmark – and indeed with all of the Danish people at this very difficult time.”

 

Paul Goldenberg, director of the Secure Community Network (SCN), will travel to Copenhagen this week to support the community in addressing security issues. SCN, the national homeland security initiative of The Jewish Federations of North America and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, has regularly consulted with Jewish organizations in the United States and around the world on security-related matters and in the wake of terrorist attacks such as the ones perpetrated in Denmark in recent hours.

As we mourn with the Danish Jewish community, JFNA leadership will continue to confer with government agencies and officials on matters of Jewish communal safety.
