​​The SAJBD stands shoulder to shoulder with the people of Israel

The SAJBD stands shoulder to shoulder with the people of Israel at one of the most devastating times of the Jewish state’s existence.

We mourn the brutal murders of over 659 Israeli citizens and the barbaric kidnapping of over 100 hostages, including, elderly, women and children, taken for the clear purpose of blackmail and extortion. Our thoughts are with all those who have lost loved ones, for the thousands of injured and for those who have not been accounted for.

We also recognise the right of Israel to defend itself and its citizens.

We acknowledge all those who have unequivocally supported our community and have shown solidarity with Israel at this horrific time. Similarly, we are appalled by those who have attempted to justify the heinous actions of Hamas.

South African Jewry will, in the coming days, show solidarity with Israel through prayers and vigils.

This will be communicated tomorrow.
