The Downtown Cluster of Congregations condemns the Violence and calls for a Cease fire between Hamas and Israel

The Downtown Cluster of Congregations condemns the tragic violence committed by Hamas taking the lives of innocent people, separating families, and the uprooting of lives that has occurred. It also stresses the need for action to avert a humanitarian crisis in Gaa and ensure the protection and proper care of the Palestinians.

"There is never justification for violence that takes the lives of innocent people," says Terry Lynch, Executive Director. "Hostages should be released and an immediate cease fire occur to stop the humanitarian crisis. Our prayers and thoughts are with the thousands of victims of the violence, those who are held hostage and their families."
