“The Wellington Jewish Community extends its deepest condolences to the victims of the mass shooting at two Christchurch mosques”, said Chair of Temple Sinai, Matthew Smith and Chair of the Wellington Jewish Community Centre, Marlene Levine.

“This violent act is deeply disturbing. For it to be perpetrated on people in a place prayer, adds to what is already incomprehensible.”

“Our prayers and thoughts are with the Muslim community of Christchurch who were the target of this attack.”

“As a community, we must stand together against hate, bigotry and violence. We must be upstanders, not bystanders in the face of discrimination, prejudice and the violation of human rights.”

“An attack on any faith community is an attack on all of us. The Jewish community wish to extend support to our Muslim brothers and sisters at this time, and offer support in any way we can.”
