Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein: Christians and Jews Praying for Victims of Las Vegas Mass Shooting
CHICAGO — Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, founder and president of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, releases statement on Las Vegas mass shooting:
“As Israelis, we understand the pain of terror. Whether it’s the responsibility of a radical Islamist or a domestic terrorist, whether it’s done in the name of religion or not, all terrorism inflicts the same pain, suffering and unspeakable heartbreak. Today, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews grieves with our beloved friends in the United States. We pray for those most closely impacted by the horrific attack in Las Vegas, and we ask God to speak words of comfort and resolve in the mind of every child so that instead of fearing the world, they will be inspired to bring peace to the world."
