Dear friends and colleagues,

In the wake of Saturday’s horrific events, the Givat Haviva community struggles to find rays of light in this darkness.

We hope that the lessons learned from this include being reminded of the preciousness of life, of how easily peace can be shattered, and of the relevance of the story of Abraham’s welcoming generosity to strangers.

May all Americans unite at this moment with our Jewish brothers and sisters in Pittsburgh.

In peace,

Mohammad Darawshe
