The New York State Bar Association
mourns the tragic murder of eleven worshippers at the Tree of Life Congregation
in Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Religious liberty is an inalienable
right and a hallmark of our Nation. This vicious and premeditated attack
against worshippers in a Synagogue observing their faith strikes at the heart
of who we are as a people. We must do everything in our power to prevent
such horrors from reoccurring.
Lawyers are often called upon to be leaders in our communities. Now is the time
for all of us to be leaders and to stand up and speak out for
the American values of freedom, fairness and respect for all.
