Chief Rabbi: Las Vegas shooting is “among the most harrowing, murderous attacks ever recorded”
After the devastating Las Vegas shooting last night at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, which saw 58 killed and over 500 injured, the Chief Rabbi released the following statement.
“The sheer scale of the loss of life in Las Vegas places it among the most harrowing, murderous attacks of its kind ever recorded. As the facts of this massacre become clear, each of us faces a choice. We can either join in with the inevitable chorus of raging recriminations and counter-recriminations or we can resolve to honour the victims and their families, and to defy the wishes of the perpetrator, by spreading a message of hope and peace. I urge you to join me in choosing the latter.
May the memory of all those who lost their lives be for a blessing.”
