A statement against hate, violence, and extremism by Jewish people in particular

Anyone who promotes Jewish extremism and/or vigilantism is breaking Halacha (Jewish law) and putting Jewish lives in danger too. The state of Israel is not blameless in this world. We Jewish people are not blameless. We do not automatically have the moral high ground. God asks us to do what is right and repent when we are wrong. In these extremely difficult times for the Jewish people — from a faith perspective and an antisemitism perspective — I pray that we will wake up and unite in returning to Him before it is too late.
