The FDU Jewish student community is in mourning as we reflect on the abhorrent murder of Jews who had come together to worship in Pittsburgh. This is an attack on our entire community, and we are committed to keeping the memories of those who were killed alive in our hearts.
We believe the best way to combat antisemitism on campus is to build strong, vibrant Jewish communities. At this point, we are disappointed that no campus officials, organizations, or student clubs have reached out to express their support or solidarity and that we were not included in the prayer service being held on Thursday. In the future, we hope to work closely with university administrators, student life officials and our religious community partners to ensure the Jewish community feel actively engaged and welcome on campus.
