Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ Stands with the Kansas City Community
Following Tragic Shooting

The Greater MetroWest community mourns the tragic loss of life in Kansas City following yesterday’s horrific events, and our sympathies are with the families of the victims. No community should ever have to face a moment such as this one. Today, on the eve of Pesach, we are left to contemplate how we must continue our work building a world in which all people are free to live their lives without the threat of terror.
