Believing that the interests of the Jewish People are strengthened by a healthy rabbinate and the cooperation of the rabbis in the work of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, the Board of Rabbis of Southern California seeks to:
Promote and nurture the growth of rabbis on both spiritual and professional levels,
Foster a sense of Klal Yisrael among the different denominations, and
Board of Rabbis of Southern California Strongly Condemns Murder of Rabbis at Prayer in Jerusalem
We share the grief of good minded people around the world who condemn terror, and who are aghast at the brutal murder of Rabbi Moshe Twersky and three other rabbis in Jerusalem today. Attacking innocents in a house of worship is a cowardly act of violence whose sole intent is to cause death and suffering.
Rabbi Twersky was the son of Prof. Isadore Twersky of Harvard University, and the grandson of the noted scholar Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik. Rabbis Aryeh Kupinsky, Kalman Levine, and Avraham Goldberg also died in the heinous act. Their loss is our loss, and we mourn with their families.
May the day come when we can beat swords into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks, a day of peace for all God's children.
