The National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene stands in solidarity mit undzere brider un shvester in Eretz Yisroel.
We condemn this brutal attack against Jewish men, women and children as they woke up to celebrate Shabbas and the end of our holiest days. Fifty years and one day after the Yom Kippur War and only 80 years after the Shoah we cannot understate the seriousness of this attack on Jews.
An attack on one Jew is an attack on all.
