The Rabbinical Council of America, the leading organization of orthodox rabbis in North America, strongly condemns the violence and bigotry displayed yesterday at the White supremacist, alt-right, neo-Nazi and pro-Confederate gathering in Charlottesville, VA and mourns the deaths and injuries that resulted.
"We are appalled by wanton displays of violence and hatred that erupted in Charlottesville on Saturday," said Rabbi Elazar Muskin, president of the Rabbinical Council of America. "We pray for the injured and express our condolences to the families of those who were killed. We join our voices with all those who embrace the best of our country's values of respect, tolerance and decency."
