While no one was injured in an attack late Sunday night targeting an Indiana synagogue, we continue to pray that the rising incidents of hate crimes against Jewish communities throughout the U.S. will soon end.

“We’re in this climate now where acts of hate are happening everywhere,” the rabbi told the newspaper.

“The goal was to make us afraid, but we’re not going to let fear consume us. We’ll stand up to fear, we’ll stand up to hatred and we’ll stand together. We know this is not representative of our community. We know that we live in a community that supports each other.”

Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke visited the Conservative synagogue Tuesday morning and issued a statement condemning the attack and calling it “a disgusting act of hate and bigotry that cannot be tolerated.”

As America witnesses this increase in anti-Semitic crimes, please stand with us and sign our statement of solidarity against hate.
