Statement Regarding Threat Made Against Congregation Sha’aray Shalom

The Hingham Unity Council stands in solidarity against antisemitism. We were horrified to learn about the threat toward the Congregation Sha’aray Shalom, and we know this only increases fear and trauma for many of our community members. It is vitally important that our community continue to remain ever-vigilant in resisting antisemitism. With the threat today, we urge our entire community to reflect on and live out our shared values. We again reiterate the call for our community: As a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-faith community, we reject all forms of hate. We all belong here.

The Hingham Unity Council acknowledges the enormous grief that is being felt throughout our community in the wake of shocking and horrifying violence and terror in Israel and Gaza. We unequivocally condemn the recent attacks on innocent lives by Hamas. We grieve these losses as our own. As individuals, we believe our most powerful tool at this time is to recognize and honor our shared humanity. We continue to pledge to use our collective voice to call attention to and support all those facing humanitarian crises.
